"Puck Labor Day"

That's the title of a new opinion piece of mine at The Daily Caller, in which I argue that fans should harness the power of the Internet to make our voices heard in the current CBA negotiations. Media outlets too often focus solely on the struggle between labor and management in these disputes, and we fans get overlooked. So it's up to us to make sure people know what we think.

Best line in Lance Hornby's report. "Bettman and union executive director Donald Fehr couldn't even agree on who decided to end the talks Friday, Bettman insisting he was free to chat and Fehr offering to talk about minor CBA points." Coming Soon: "Bulldogs and Nailers Eyes on The Prize"

Nash Dealt to Rangers

So we can silence the Scott Gomez to Columbus thoughts, as the Rick Nash saga appears to be over. This afternoon, the Columbus Blue Jackets traded their captain to the New York Rangers. Minor league rearguard Steven Delisle and a conditional third-round selection in the 2013 NHL Draft also go to New York. In exchange, Columbus gets forwards Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov, defenseman Tim Erixon and the Rangers' first-round selection in the 2013 draft. Columbus will regain its third-round pick if the Rangers make it to the 2013 Stanley Cup Final. Nash waived his no-movement clause prior to the trade, which is conditional on all players passing a physical by 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday. Barring injuries, or further transactions, the Rangers forward lines should look something like this. Carl Hagelin - Brad Richards - Rick Nash Chris Kreider - Derek Stepan - Marian Gaborik Taylor Pyatt - Brian Boyle - Ryan Callahan Mike Rupp - Jeff Halpern - Arron Asham More foillow-up from our SBN counterparts at Blueshirt Banter and The Cannon For those asking, BJ's GM Scott Howson has said nothing on Twitter over the deal. For that matter, he's tweeted nothing since February, the same time Nash made it clear he wanted out of the Buckeye State.

Patty Mills has finally been released from his CBA contract after being released by the Xinjiang Flying Tigers for 'supposedly' faking an injury. He is hopeful to get back in the NBA, with teams such as the Lakers possibly interested in him. Seeing as Portland still owns his rights, do we keep him or trade him? His speed and shooting could prove valuable to any team. What do you all think?
