Welcome to Bryz status, Leo.
Welcome to Bryz status, Leo.
Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

It looks as though even star writer Jordyn Leopold won't be able to save her dad's job with the Wild. This is slightly disappointing as Jordan Leopold was a solid player down the stretch in Minnesota, but he is on the losing end of a game of numbers on a crowded blue line that is trending younger. Who knows, maybe it could turn into an Ilya Bryzgalov situation where GMCF could pick up the phone in case of an injury or poor play. But as it sits now, it looks like Leo may have seen his last game in the NHL. Jordan Leopold, we salute you.

Today's musical selection is another installation in the Walk theme, from one of the best performers you will ever see live. Take us on a Walk, Huey.
