Wilderness Walk: Best Of Three Edition

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Game 5 of the Stanley Cup playoffs is tonight in Tampa Bay. The series is tied 2-2 so this finals matchup is now a best of three series. As the NHL playoffs come to a close so does most of the Wild news and really once Dubnyk is signed there probably won't be any specific Wild news for awhile until closer to the draft.

I personally think the Wild should just draft the highest scoring forward in the Canadian Hockey League. The highest scoring forward will be determined by the total points scored in their 17-year old season in the CHL. I heard that it's actually a pretty good strategy.
