    •    Jack Parker calls it a career, and the Colorado Avalanche have a couple of coaches that might be interested in the head coach position at Boston University when the job opens up at the end of the season.
    •    Jim Matheson provides his list of potential trade targets at the NHL trade deadline, and the usual suspects are all over the list. There has been plenty of Jarome Iginla chatter around Boston as negotiations are going nowhere between the Calgary captain and the Flames on a new contract.
    •    Brad Marchand reveals that Tuukka Rask is a chicken wing-eating machine. Who could have guessed that?
    •    The Florida Panthers’ Shawn Matthias is “sick of losing.” So are the rest of the Panthers, but reality has set in for them.
    •    Michael Ryder salts away a win for the Montreal Canadiens during a grueling stretch, and is already paying dividends for the Habs.
    •    Bobby Ryan is helping carry the Anaheim Ducks offensively this season, and no words have been spoken about him potentially being available in a trade. Looks like the Ducks are going forward with what they have for one big run this season.
    •    For something different: a tease of tonight’s Dan Roche exclusive with Toucher and Rich’s Rich Shirtenleib and wife Mary about her miracle comeback from cancer is something that shouldn’t be missed.
