Wilderness Walk: Lazy Sunday Edition

New, comments
Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Sorry everybody that I only got around to doing the Sunday edition of the Wilderness Walk. To be honest, not a whole lot of earth-shattering news out there concerning the Minnesota Wild. A an article from our buddies over at Wild Xtra, a few words on Darcy Kuemper and even an early-early-early look at a 2016 NHL mock draft. It's never too early for mock drafts.
