Well, as a big fan of booing Ryan Suter, this is delightful news.

Erik Karlsson dealt to Sharks as Senators continue roster teardown – ProHockeyTalk
The San Jose Sharks really come out on top in this deal. Of course, any victory the Ottawa Senators try to claim would be a Pyrrhic victory. Of course, getting rid of Hoffman, at least I thought, was to calm the locker room tension, but following it up by getting rid of Erik Karlsson lets me know this whole ordeal is more about starting from scratch than it about looking out for your star players. And just remember, Julius Caesar was murdered in the Senate, so it's never a good idea to trust Senators.

FULL NO-TRADE CLAUSE FOR THE LIFE OF THE CONTRACT!?!?! Must have been Tyler's sticking point.

McDonald sees China Games pivotal to growth of hockey
With as impressive of a mustache as Lanny McDonald has been able to grow, it amazes me that anyone couldn't fall in love with hockey after seeing it in person.
