Paging Dr. Freud to the TSN studios. Paging Dr. Freud...
So close to game day. So close. We still have Twitter and a plethora of new blogs, but in the meantime, here are some stories and blogs that have helped us get through the tough times.
-Brent Burns refutes every opposing trade on HF Boards. Or his head's fine. (Star Tribune)
-It's hard to have missed this as Deuce wrote a commentary on it, but Rory Boylen has a nice piece in The Hockey News about missing Jacques Lemaire. He also tweeted that the second choice for coach (according to former assistant GM Tom Lynn) was Dave Tippett. *puts on sunglasses* Either way, it's still a trap. YEEAAAAAHHHH!!!!
-Wild.com has an interview with Patrick O'Sullivan which doesn't go too far in-depth, but he did let everyone know Cal Clutterbuck doesn't snore. Clutterstache on the other hand...
-Chuck Fletcher takes a page out of the Dana White playbook by bringing in an Army Ranger to motivate the troops. (Pioneer Press)
-As mentioned earlier, Wild prospect Jason Zucker made the USA preliminary roster for the World Junior Hockey Championships. If you don't know what the WJHC is then there's a nice blog on the subject here at FRB to read.
-Gone Puck Wild writes a Mikko Koivu Christmas letter. And no, he doesn't ask for a sled.
-Robbie Earl leads the Aeros to a win against Oklahoma City. (The Third Intermission)
-Darren Eliot gives the Wild a mirror as a gift. (SI.com)
-And in a related note, Pierre LeBrun gives the Wild a "D" for their efforts. Sort of a negative way to end things, but then again it's not like the grade is out of place. (ESPN.com)
