Can we still offer sheet Subban?
Fair enough, glad that's over!
Welcome to another Sunday Funday edition of your Wilderness Walk. The news in the hockey world, as always this time of year, is pretty light. I'm not going to church it up for you folks, besides the Subban drama coming to a close, basically nothing happened.
On the bright side, I'm finally starting to come around from an illness that had me dragging in the worst way. I love you antibiotics! So if I've been scarce here, or on the twittersphere lately that is why. I'll also be taking a trip up to the the North Shore come this Wednesday so if your in the Grand Marais area and see me with my family, keep walking!
