Wilderness Walk: Eerily Quiet Edition

New, comments

With Bruce Boudreau likely off bronzing his demigod-like body, we’re left pondering some of life’s age-old questions.

NHL: Chicago Blackhawks at Minnesota Wild Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

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?

Is the Wild’s team name a noun or an adjective?

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. We start to look at things in a different way and really question some of life’s most basic gifts. With no games on the horizon until Monday, it sure is quiet out here in the Wilderness.

Whose idea was it to do this stupid bye thing anyway?

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. After I’m done with that, Minneapolis’s own Motion City Soundtrack is going to take me through the Walk.
