We will fight to the end. We will stand and defend. Our flag flying high and free…
Wild vs. Preds – last regular season game of the 2013-14 season
OK, not all of them – Koivu and Veilleux are still here. I miss the days of the first-come, first-serve Minnesota Wild player appearances. Once they changed the autograph policies, it basically became impossible for me to attend these any longer. More samples after the jump.

I’m pretty excited for the start of the Wild season tonight. My aunt and uncle still have their season tickets, so I’m hoping to get to a few games this year. It will be nice to have a full regular season again and see what Coach Yeo can do with these guys in the last year of his coaching contract.
There probably won’t be a lot of hockey posts here this year, as you can read everything you need to know about the Wild from the always excellent Mike Russo at the Star Tribune.
I will say I’m very happy about the new conference and division alignment (fewer late nights) and the hybrid icing decision (finally). As for the team, I hope Granlund has a breakout year and that Zucker is ready to jump in when someone gets hurt. I’m somewhat worried about the goaltending situation and will miss Clutterbuck, Cullen and Butch. Neutral on Matt Cooke at this point.
