Wilderness Walk: It's Here! (Again)

New, comments
Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Well, after last night's game STARTED out good... got bad, got good again, got bad, got worse, got good, then collapsed.

Then there was a moment of life... but ultimately no. The Wild failed to beat the Sabres. Granted, it's preseason so it matters not even a little. Wild were basically undefeated and had the best PP in the world last season... so maybe this is a great omen?

For today's video, enjoy a jazz favorite from Stan Kenton. It's great.

Wild: Erik Haula only looking ahead | TwinCities.com
"Haula I think is a guy that deserves some credit for the way he is playing so far," coach Mike Yeo said. "He has come into camp in good shape. ... He certainly is well ahead of where he was last year at this time. That's a positive for him and for us both."

Wild Season Preview: Getting over the hump | theScore
Make no mistake: This Mike Yeo-led team can make the Western Conference finals, maybe even the Stanley Cup Final, even if only one player on the roster finishes with more than 60 points. But it would probably help if the Wild's road didn't go through Chicago.
