  • NHL Expansion? Yep, that’s back in the news. Hey, its better than CBA updates. How does 32 teams sound to you? (Puck Daddy)
  • It’s starting to look like Greg Jamison won’t be able to secure the funds to purchase the Phoenix Coyotes by tonight’s midnight deadline. I’m absolutely stunned. (The Hockey News)
  • The ECHL’s Las Vegas Wranglers win at life. At least their promotions department does. On February 4th, they will host an “Over 18 Night” where… they will be topless. Well, seemingly topless. (Las Vegas Wranglers)

  • PK Subban finally re-signed with Montreal. Or, the Canadiens GM finally re-signed their franchise defenseman. Either or. 2 years for Subban. (Montreal Canadiens)
  • Now onto another prized RFA. Ryan O’Reilly. He’s still unsigned and currently nursing a minor ankle injury. Trade on the horizon? (All Things Avalanche)
  • This is straight out of the “Oh, Really? You Don’t Say” section of the library. Canada really loves hockey. Like. A lot. But maybe, too much? Is that even possible? (The Globe And Mail)
  • Shanahammer Victim #2: Colin McDonald. The New York Islander forward has been suspended for two games for boarding Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Ben Lovejoy. The Shanahammer is strong and mighty this season. (NHL)
  • VIDEO: Brad Stuart levels Gabriel Landeskog. Clean or dirty? (YouTube)
