Facebook preview of the new look. Don't know if the link will work or not.
Head to Fear the Fin to get some gut trade reaction. Basically, Ehrhoff and Lukowich are off to Vancouver for spare parts. The trade may get the Sharks cap-compliant, but I'm not doing cap-ceiling math any more.
Not a large-scale interview, but amazing to see our SBN Thrasher affiliate nail a few moments with uberlegend Scotty Bowman back at the NHL draft. Some of the writers we've got on this network and the opportunities they are seizing seriously blow my mind. Anyway, Scotty offers three nice answers to this question (plus one more), but you'll have to click the link to see his answers.

As you may know, I am a terrible fan when it comes to tracking NHL prospects -- blame television, which focuses my attention to big-league ice only. But not so with our pal Arthur from AC -- based on my urging (well, I forwarded an e-mail) he's put together an offseason look at 20 potential future Ducks and listed them according to their NHL likeliness. As always with scouting and projecting, there's always going to some debates and nobody knows anything for sure, but I'll tell you this much -- it's a better scouting package than you'll ever get from me. Nicely done, Arthur. Go Ducks.
If anyone will be in the San Jose area December 26th, join the FTF group for the Ducks @ Sharks game. Follow the link or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
I don't see it reported anywhere on here, but Wiz re-signed for 1 year, avoiding arbitration. Wonder how much he got.
For a team that has gone 44 years without a championship, the Los Angeles Kings are a fascinating study on so many levels. In their history, they've made just one trip to the Stanley Cup final (1993) and may have even won the thing if Marty McSorley hadn't been caught using an illegal stick, right at the point that they were about to take a 2-0 lead, on the road, against the Montreal Canadiens. It's been mostly downhill for the 15 seasons since – 11 years out of the playoffs, three first-round exits, plus one memorable upset win over a 111-point Detroit Red Wings in 2001, with coach Andy Murray behind the bench.Kings making their move - Globe and Mail
Details to follow- most likely whether or not he cried when the Avs told him about the deal.
