  • Some interesting thoughts about Keith Yandle being made available for a top tier young player, and some of the teams involved. You have to wonder if the Bruins would be interested in a player like that moving forward.
  • Kirk Luedeke brings his vast array of hockey prospect knowledge to some second round projections for the Boston Bruins.
  • Jonathan Toews and Pat Kane have found their playoff grooves at just the right time, although Toews isn’t quite as groovy and Kane right now. He still has another level he can get to for the Blackhawks 
  • Dallas Eakins is named the new head coach of the Edmonton Oilers after his predecessor was fired via Skype.
  • The first victim of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ fall is claimed, and it’s the goaltending coach for the Penguins. Yeah, because it was clearly the goaltender’s fault. 
  • Conflicting reports as to whether New York Rangers general manager Glen Sather is considering stepping down as GM of hockey operations for the Blueshirts. You’d have to think he wants to get the ship turned around before he would do that, but it seems to be a point of debate right now. 
  • It appears that PK Subban is going to win the Norris Trophy. Well-deserved: in my opinion, he was the best defenseman that I watched play this season, and dominated once he signed with the Canadiens.
  • For something completely different: the new edition of the Mad Men power rankings is out.
