It's great to be back here in the Wilderness. Did you guys miss me last week? Either way, what I do know is that most of us are probably still trying to get over that loss to Colorado on Thursday. I thought that game had promise, but we just couldn't pull it off. One thing's for sure, Backstrom is pretty good during regulation, but absolutely terrible during the shootout. Also, I hope everyone has been having a great Hockey Weekend Across America so far! For those not aware, yesterday was Wear Your Jersey Day, so I hope that many of you remembered to proudly wear any sort of Wild jersey! With all this out of the way, let's take a Walk:
