You may commence road trip planning...

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-St. Louis Blues at Minnesota Wild Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Sure, we’re three months away from the season opener in October, but that’s never stopped me from daydreaming about pre-game beers at whatever the popular neighborhood bar might happen to be, and being the out-of-towner in road arenas. As a resident of the west coast, I definitely have my eye on San Jose, Vancouver, and... dare I say... Vegas? Those all sound like GREAT trips. I look forward to still being able to wear my Jonas Brodin jersey live and in person... right?

Where will you go, Wilderness?
