Hey-dee-ho, there, Wilderness!
So, in case you haven't heard, there's some controversy with the Vikings... but I don't want to talk about that.
I want to talk about how there are just a FEW DAYS LEFT till training camp (and 10 days till pre-season, and 24 till the regular season, but who's counting?)
There should be a new episode of the Hockey Wilderness Podcast coming out today or tomorrow... keep an eye open!
It's neither a fast nor slow news day, but there are some GREAT things to read. So, enjoy some 'tunes, and let's get to The Walk

Will the NHL publicize divers? | ProHockeyTalk
Because it hasn't yet decided if it will. Personally, I hope so. As a fan of soccer and hockey, nothing pisses me off more than a dive working. If you don't know what I'm talking about, go watch Arjen Robben play soccer for 5 minutes.
