Rinne had a better week than Condon, IMO. But I'm being greedy. NHL.com got it right.

Predators stay out of trade deadline, keep roster intact | Tennessean
If you're in the room and you hear that no moves are being made... what the reaction? After the week the Preds have had... hopefully it was one of positive thoughts and belief.

Making sense of the Mikkel Boedker trade - Five For Howling
If there was one move I wanted Poile to make, it was making a play for Alex Tanguay after the Boedker trade happened. But either way, good on Arizona seizing the chance. And if Tanguay wants to finish his career there... that could be a fun adventure. Shame on Colorado for shipping out a guy who has been a good solider for that franchise over a long period of time. And if you look at the numbers over the last three years... Tanguay may be the better player.

It's hard to forget the cold, droning sound of the Bruins goal horn sounding over Jack Edwards calling out "BER-GER-RONNNN!". That was a special, special moment. Then Jack Edwards drops some serious metaphors.

But yeah... that would've sucked for the Leafs... no doubt.
