Wilderness Walk: HOF Coach Edition

Scott Stevens joins the Wild bench as a part of Bruce Boudreau's staff

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

Now starring as the shiny new coordinator of the once league-best penalty kill and stacked blue line of the Minnesota Wild - NHL Hall of Fame Defenseman Scott Stevens.  Beyond his illustrious playing career, Stevens has also served not only as an NHL assistant coach, but once shared the "Co-Coach" title with one Adam Oates in New Jersey.  This looks to be an excellent signing for a team looking for strong leaders to continue to maximize the results of the players on its roster and push toward bringing Lord Stanley's Cup to Minnesota.  Stevens has a dazzling resume and is known as a defensive genius, and should infuse life into the Wild's best asset: it's young core of defenders, which may or may not be intact when the season begins.  It's an exciting pickup for the team and the players should embrace Stevens great experience immediately.

Here's what happens when a 90's band who no one ever thought would reunite does: PURE AWESOMENESS.
