Wilderness Walk: 8-9-2013

New, comments

We fix the NHL, find kinks in Chicago's armor (maybe), and prepare to watch our prospects duel.

No offense, but is this really the best we could do for defensemen for an All-Time Wild team?

UPDATE

This is too awesome. NHL Logos re-designed with Pokemon. I don't care what the Wild's are, I'll want it.

TO YOUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED PROGRAM

Finally, we're getting close to some hockey.

The Traverse City Tournament is approaching. You'll get to read more about it later, but finally! Some Wild Hockey coming up! Much like Alec Baldwin asking to smell my mouth, I thought this day would never come!

Most of the Walk is about the NHL as a whole rather about the Wild, but there's some fun stuff in here. There's Blackhawk burgers, and fun rules change suggestions, and discussions on the best Wild team of all-time.

But don't take my word for it, on to the Walk!
