How to sum up the first few hours of the NHL trade deadline day…
The biggest news of the day is Ty Conklin clearing waivers and Curits Mcelhinney going right from the waiver wire directly to hell. Yes, those are bigger moves then Wideman and Dvorak leading the Panther exodus.

Higgins returns to Canada to disappoint yet another northern demonym. Senator ‘fans’ better hope he never takes a crack at politics.
Lapeirre joins his fellow ex-Hab in Vancouver. Hockey fans give a collective “wha?”
