After watching this video, we have a sneaking suspicion the NHL's motives for moving the Jets out of Winnipeg had more to do with a potential lawsuit from Wang Chung than all this silly business of a state of the art arena.
(Kudos to Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News for the find.)
EMPTY NETTER ASSISTS
-The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins released their schedule.
-Flyers forward Glen Metropolit is a good human. (You have no idea how much it hurt to write that.)
-Islanders forward Bill Guerin apparently has Brett Favre on his fantasy team.
-Should Canadiens coach Guy Cabonneau be in the Hall of Fame as a player?
-The Predators signed goaltender Chet Pickard, a first-round pick in this year's draft, to an entry-level deal.
-Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg got to spend a day with the Stanley Cup.
-If you ever wanted to design the mask of a Canucks backup goaltender, Curtis Sanford is giving you a chance.
-The Oilers promoted Rick Olczyk to an assistant general manager position. He is the brother of former Penguins coach and broadcaster Eddie Olczyk.
-The Kings signed defenseman Drew Doughty, the second overall selection in this year's draft.
-The NHL released the entire preseason schedule.
