What is going on Wilderness!? I feel like it’s been ages (it has). So what have you all been up to? Here we are, firmly entrenched in the summer of our hockeys discontent. Where the biggest news of the day is maybe news, but who knows right? It’s nice to have something to talk about I suppose.

The thing with Kaprizov, in my head at least, is he’s never really been something to get excited about until he lands in Minnesota. Until that day, if it happens, best to not get too worked up over it. He’s a Russian 5th round pick, this was always a risk. Given the amount of time it took for Mikael Granlund to develop, this could be for the best anyway.

Much like post-season success in mens Minnesota sports, the glory can be found only in dreams...
