Not a ton to get to today, but still, some interesting stuff out in the hockey world. Hope you enjoy it. Going to Switch up the order a bit today, as well, so buckle your seat belt. I don't want anyone to get whiplash.
First Things First:
Announcing the First Ever SBNation Minnesota Meet-Up! - Hockey Wilderness - This is a fan post over on the right hand column of the site.

Good stuff from the best blog readers in the general vicinity. ;-) Second, this is not a Hockey Wilderness meet-up. This is a SBNation - Minnesota meet-up. Come have some fun with fans of all of the Minnesota teams.
