'There are many places you can follow along as the trade deadline comes roaring at us on Monday. And since it IS coming on a Maonday, don't be surprised if Monday is particularly busy, making up for the trades that didn't happen today and won't happen tomorrow. Like hell Brian Burke is working on a Sunday.
I am pretty excited. In the past couple of years, the Wild have been sellers who didn't ever sell (dammit, Risebrough) and this year, they are expected to be buyers as they are firmly entrenched in the playoff hunt. I would just like to savor that statement for a moment. LD, Schultz, are you savoring? My team has a chance to make the playoffs! I know the Wild have a lot of defensive prospects and needs, especially up the middle, so I am surely going to be excited by the trades Minnesota makes or incredibly disappointed, in which case an early morning drinking game is going to be just what the doctor ordered.
... for every player included in a trade.
... once for the round of a traded draft pick. Oh, you traded Milan Hejduk fro a 6th round pick? The bad news is, youo were robbed, the good news is, six drinks!
... Every time you see or read the phrase "BREAKING NEWS". Bonus drink if it's in all caps like that.
... Thrice per televised mullet. Engblom counts.
.... at the top of every hour. IF you are into this game, you will be at it for a long, long time.
Of course, I work at 2 at Real Job Inc (this isn't my real job, believe it or not!) so I intend to be completely annihalated for my shift. Just like Patrick Kane!
