If a tree falls in Hockey Wilderness, and the Wild is on bye week, does it make a sound?
If the Wild’s goal was to fail at winning the Cup, and it didn’t win the Cup, did it succeed or fail?
If Joel Quenneville walks up to me and says “Don’t take advice from strangers,” should I take his advice?

Should the Wild’s team name be considered singular or plural?
These are the types of questions that suddenly come up when you take hockey away from Minnesota Wild fans for a few days.

Now if you’ll excuse me, to deal with my severe symptoms of hockey withdrawal, I’m going to go watch Aaron Voros jump out of the penalty box and destroy this Columbus player, circa 2007, on repeat for the next six hours.

Ugh! Of course he does. Can’t STAND this guy!
For those who were clamoring for a new backup for the Wild, things have been rough in this regard for the Bruins this year.
