The sports world is zeroed in on the NFL lockout at the moment, and rightfully so, but the NHL had a fairly busy week of news itself.
The Devils found their coach, Steven Stamkos signed on the dotted line and Alexei Yashin is rumored to be interested in a return to the NHL. Most importantly, the Winnipeg Jets announced their new logo.
Sure, it may not all be as dramatic as the NFL labor dispute, but the NHL has been there done that, and is on to bigger and better things.
Granted, we are entering a bit of a dead zone when it comes to offseason coverage in the NHL. The majority of free agent activity has been completed, and training camps don't open for another few months. However, news is news, no matter how small. So, let's get to it.
