First of the Uber Boys gets the boot: Chris Wideman sent to Edmonton for a sixth rounder.

Melnyk suing his development partner for 700M because he didn't get a free arena. The jig is up, Melnyk has no money. This won't work, and he'll have to sell. The only question is whether the buyer is in Ottawa, Quebec City or somewhere else...

Bettman has been pretty clear they have no intention of giving Quebec City a team via expansion, but they may have no choice in this instance if the most suitable location is Quebec given the variety of factors. Heard a rumour they've earmarked Houston as a potential fix to the Arizona conundrum, so they would likely be out of the running for this re-location.

Matt Duchene is quietly putting up better than PPG numbers so far. Honestly think he'll re-sign. Seems like he'd rather be close to home than win, which is his prerogative.

Yep, if he's happy living close to his beloved Haliburton County, more power to him. I never took him that seriously when he said the whole thing about not wanting to go through another rebuild (though that was totally understandable too). I think he was simply trying to stay classy and not saying what really happened, which was that the organization had simply soured on him and he wanted a fresh start.

Either way dude is gonna cash in.

Both Matt Duchene and Bobby Ryan are set to miss significant time due to injuries.

Dutchy was chasing down an icing when he pulled up lame, BR just flat-out ran into a guy's shoulder head-first going full speed.

Sens just loooooooove them former Avs properties. Not only is former Avs draft pick Paul Carey getting the nod, but recently-signed defenseman Stefan Elliott will be drawing in as well. Elliott was one of the picks in that once-stellar 2009 Avs draft class that yielded Duchene, O'Reilly, and Barrie. Now only Barrie remains on that roster.

Our old friend Sask knows plenty about Stef, a decent puckmover who has a very deceptive wrister that makes it through traffic. I still feel like a grand opportunity was missed, as he was passed up for bigger, slower, more physical defenders at the time and his development stalled badly. Maybe he'll reassert himself with this new opportunity.

Stef's old defensive partner in Saskatoon, Duncan Siemens ended up being taken in 2011 11th overall by the Avs but unfortunately ended up being a big bust. He had a brief but notable stint with the Avs late last season and even saw a game in the postseason (where he promptly got dunked on by Filip Forsberg) but is currently out of hockey.
