The Wild just acquired the ultimate lightning in a bottle, awesome, crazy, weird goalie.

Ilya Bryzgalov could play five games in his Wild career and never stop a puck. He could take over in the playoffs and lead them to a Stanley Cup title. Neither would surprise us.

But before we think about all that, let's lay low for a little while and mellow out. Let's think about our place in this big, big universe ... and let ol' Ilya enlighten us all about how much it all really means. Stop a puck? Miss a puck? Does any of it matter?
