10K Rinks Radio- A Minnesota Wild Podcast

It's another episode of 10K Rinks Radio!

This week, Tony and Joe chat about some strong performances in the early goings. Mikael Granlund and Eric Fehr get some shout-outs from the week. Then Joe talks about how the Minnesota Wild have done in third periods over the season, they look at Jordan Greenway and Joel Eriksson Ek, check out the AHL, and end with Tony setting high expectations for the team's long road trip.

If you somehow listen to this show but hate Wild hockey, Tony also gives indispensable marriage advice and Joe dreams of what he'd do if he won the lottery.

Joe's back as we officially kick things off as 10K Rinks Radio! Heads up, there's a possibility that we'll have to change feeds, so if you're subscribed to us and don't see a new episode by, say, next Wednesday, make sure to look for us on your favorite podcast app.

Anyway, we talked about the slow start that Minnesota had, as the Minnesota Wild dropped two unwatchable games. We talked about what was bad, which was tough to narrow down from "everything", but we did it, because we rule.

We then talked about our thoughts on the shake-up in the lines that are going to occur. I'm not saying what our thoughts are, because you could just listen to it. 

Then we answer your mailbag questions about Devan Dubnyk, Joel Eriksson Ek, Charlie Coyle, Joe Satriani, and the next former Wild player to dagger Minnesota.

That's it! Follow Tony and Joe on Twitter.
