Next we look at other trade deadline targets, Antoine Vermette, Jaromir Jagr, Andrej Sekara, Jiri Tlusty, Jeff Petry. What will be the price come deadline day? Who are the buyers?
We take a look at recent healthy scratches in Evander Kane, and Cody Hodgson. What are their futures in Winnipeg and Buffalo?

We move on to the news that the NHL suspended referee Tim Peel following a recent interview with Greg Wyshinski of Puck Daddy. What did he say? Why was he suspended? And is he really the worst referee in the NHL?

We also talk about how injuries to Kyle Okposo, Kevin Shattenkirk and Henrik Lundqvist will effect their teams.

Lastly we look at ESPN picking up coverage of the World Cup of Hockey. What does this mean for hockey on the Worldwide Sports Leader? How will they promote the event? Will it be a success?
