ell, the season is over. Some would say mercifully, the Wild were eliminated last night after finally deciding that they might want to try this "hockey" thing with about 3 minutes left in their season... go figure.
The Wild have some soul searching to do this offseason, and we at Hockey Wilderness will be here to cover it for you all summer long.
In that spirit, 4 of us stayed up till morning getting a new podcast ready for you- so that should drop today or tomorrow. Thanks to Ben Remington from Gone Puck Wild and Wild Xtra for contributing to that.
For today, we rest, we recover, we drink heavily, and we try to move on and adjust to life without Wild Hockey.
