    •    The Chicago Blackhawks and Miami Heat have stirred up debates all over the country with their phenomenal, historic starts to the season.
    •    Ryan Getzlaf signs an eight-year, $66 million deal with the Anaheim Ducks and the NHL middle class takes a major hit. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
    •    The Dallas Stars combo of Jaromir Jagr and Jamie Benn earns praise from their opposition, and is keeping the Stars from thinking about dismantling the team.
    •    Bruce Garrioch rates the Ottawa Senators at the midway point of the season.
    •    Spector rounds up the NHL trade rumors at the Hockey News, and that includes the Bruins.
    •    The Detroit Red Wings are getting healthy and look ready to put on a run in the second half of the year.

    •    For something completely different: Joss Whedon would have been a terrific choice to helm the new Star Wars movies, but he wasn’t going to tear himself away from the Avengers movies.
