Welcome to "Matt Cooke Needs to be a Man" Day! It's an annual (or daily) celebration of just how stupid Matt Cooke is, and how toothless today's NHL is. Enjoy!
Random Wild Picture of the Day:
Russo's Rants | StarTribune.com - Elk River native Nate Prosser is (as we speak) signing a contract with the Wild. An odd one, but hey, it is what it is.
California dream leads top prospect to Minnesota Wild | StarTribune.com - The quintessential Russo article on Wellman. Excellent quotes, good story, all around good stuff. Being the spoiled hockey fans that we are, we have come to take this type of article for granted. Don't do that. This is good stuff.
Wild signee Casey Wellman might jump right onto the NHL ice - TwinCities.com - What you would get from two newspapers if Russo wasn't here.
Game Day Enemy Perspective:
The Tennessean - Good luck.
On the Forecheck - SBN blog, and all around good people.
Preds on the Glass - You want to talk about good people?Head over here and read their stuff. Two of my favorite people in all of hockey.
Hitting The Post: NHL Recap 3-17-10: Devils sweep Penguins; Chicago keeps losing (players) - Christmas colors in NJ, huh? Took the focus of the Wild for just one day. Thanks Devs.
Cook(e)ing up a Storm?
All eyes on Matt Cooke tonight - BostonHerald.com - Wanted poster and all.
Making Sidney Crosby pay for Matt Cooke's sins - Puck Daddy - NHL Blog - Yahoo! Sports - Good stuff from Wysh, too. My bet? Nothing happens.
For those of you who can actually watch the game, enjoy. For the rest of you, have a great evening.
