Wednesday's news: Predators in Saskatoon, and scandal in the NHLPA?

We're halfway through the work week (which means I'm just a few days away from floating my way around the Caribbean), and there's lots to cover this morning. We've got reaction to the Cal O'Reilly signing, the possibility of the Predators playing games in Saskatoon this season, and a shocking allegation about the NHLPA's firing of Paul Kelly coming from our colleague in Edmonton.

All this and more after the jump!
