Media Dissent on MacDonald’s Status Post-Howard Recovery — On the Wings
Good discussion here on whether it may actually be better to send Joey Mac back to Grand Rapids to get regular playing time so he can keep his game sharp in case he's needed in the postseason. After all, Howard's backup isn't going to see much action once our Jimmah is back.

Steve Moore, former Avs player, wins a court ruling over Bertuzzi attack - The Denver Post
Part of the ongoing Bertuzzi case is that Bertuzzi, Marc Crawford, and Orca Bay Hockey Ltd. entered into a closed settlement late last year in regards to their shared case. Moore's lawyers have successfully fought to get the details of that settlement made public, as they pertain to the upcoming Moore/Bertuzzi court case. Ultimately, it's a decision with which I agree.

Mario Lemieux was much closer to moving the Penguins than he'd like you to think - PensBurgh
Remember when Travis Hughes said on this week's WIIM Radio that Philly fans will always have the Penguins nearly relocating to hold over their fans' heads? This article backs that up well by taking a shot at the revisionist history parroted by those who believe that it was all just a bluff.

The 7 NHL draft picks dealt at trade deadline that became significant players | Puck Daddy - Yahoo! Sports
It's not one of the seven in the article, but did you know that when the Red Wings traded for Robert Lang they sent Washington a 1st round draft pick. That 1st round pick turned into current Captials' defenseman Mike Green. Now, I would guess that the Wings wouldn't have chosen Green and probably traded down, but you never know. All these picks traded at the upcoming deadline could become future NHL all-stars.
Let's Go Red Wings.
