Hockey Wilderness Podcast- A Minnesota Wild Podcast

Joe, Ger, and Tony sit down to break down the early part of the Minnesota Wild's season. How good was that Jonas Brodin extension? Should we be concerned that the Wild Power Play isn't producing? Does Nino Niederreiter need to get more ice time? And what Eddie Vedder was doing in a Justin Fontaine jersey? Before the episode, Tony talks a bit about the recent Charlie Coyle extension.
