Wilderness Walk 9-29-2013: Fantasy Draft Day Edition

The preseason is over and it's just a few more days until the start of the season.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Wild are going to finalize their roster up at some point today and make preparations for their start of the regular season this coming Thursday. The wait is nearly over folks, the NHL opens up for business with 3 games on Tuesday and the Wild will face Dustin Brown and the Los Angeles Kings.

To those that signed up for our fantasy hockey leagues, today is your draft day. We are set to draft in both leagues to 6:30 pm Central. If you're not in the Central Time Zone, well you are responsible for your own time adjustments. I cannot be expected to tell you where you are or what time it is there. If you cannot attend the draft, the computer will be glad to draft for you. You may want to think about setting up some custom rankings and avoid any computer mistakes like drafting any Edmonton Oiler.
