This episode of the Hockey Wilderness Podcast is about as MEATY as you can get. First, we break down the Wild’s Trade Deadline Deals. What are we to think of the end of the Zack Phillips era? Is Jordan Leopold going to help or hurt the Wild? What were the Wild thinking with the Chris Stewart Trade? Ger sits down with Tony to figure it out.
After that interlude, we get to the main show, where Alec Schmidt (writer of Hockey Wilderness’ "Playing the System") lends his experience and perspective to the show. Along with Tony, Aaron, and Joe, the gang looks at the recent Avalanche game and the ensuing antics, the recent Sean Bergenheim deal, and breaking down a lot of young players for the Wild. We cap it all off by answering your questions in the mailbag.
