Although there are a couple of trade articles below, I have never been a big fan of the NHL’s silly season. Thanks OtF for providing the threads yesterday so those who are could discuss. “And now for something completely (somewhat) different....”

Preds Excited to Add 'Playoff-Type of Player' in Hartman | NHL.com
Everyone is so worried about who will sit for him. Maybe no one. Maybe he doesn't play until the playoffs, if then. Maybe he gives players maintenance time coming down the stretch. A depth forward with decent-to-good Handsome/60 could be important in the playoffs.

Predators Sign Mike Fisher to One-Year Deal NHL.com
Ryan Hartman kind of stole Mike Fisher's thunder, but this is a great deadline add! Heart and soul player, tough when he needs to be and a sky-high Handsome/60 - what's not to love. Welcome home Fish! Let's go get that Cup!

This cat’s twitter is on fire!

Stastny shipped to Jets as slumping Blues turn into seller at trade deadline | stltoday.com

TO THE JETS!?!?!?! How dare you sir! I believe this is their payback for being swept this year and embarrassed on Sunday. Seems a couple of Blues players think they gave up a little early.

Critics say Minnesota Wild's inclusiveness night wasn't all that gay | City Pages
First, in defense, "Hockey is for Everyone" doesn't only mean LGBTQ fans. It means everyone. I applaud Kyle Turris and the Nashville team for everything they did with many different groups during this month. Maybe the Wild should take some notes.

Staal leads 3 Stars of the Week | NHL
Our own Pekka Rinne scores the second star of the week, winning his 300th game and his 49th shutout (sixth this year).

Super Slo-mo: Week 20 | NHL.com
Hi Ryan Hartman! Nice Goal. Hi Ryan Ellis - that was a laser cannon! Hi Peks - great week and great speech! That's it?!?!?! We scored 20 goals since last Monday's post and that's it? We were robbed.

The Seattle Hockey Community Says It’s Ready for an NHL Team | Seattle Weekly
Are we sure this bar is in Seattle? Good piece on the existing hockey base in Seattle. Question for some knowledgeable person. How many sheets of ice are within 15 miles of Nashville? Twelve within 15 miles of Seattle sounded like a lot for a city that doesn’t have an NHL team.

Without NHL, Olympic hockey barely made a sound | Sam Donnellon - Philly
Really the title should have specified men's hockey, even though it is assumed from NHL. The women made quite a sound. Looks like the IIHF wants to start negotiations with the NHL for 2022 sooner rather than later.

4 takeaways from the Bruins' 4-1 loss to Sabres | boston.com
I thought they had the score backwards when I saw it last night. I still think Coach Housely will get the Sabres turned around sooner rather than later. Also, apparently the Bruins' power play is in a "funk". We hear you.
