*Tampa tonight! The Florida road trip is always such a crapshoot. Let's hope we see more of Saturday's Flyers and less of Monday's. Official preview here, check back this afternoon for the BSH preview.

*And being in Tampa means, of course, that Vincent Lecavalier is going home. He's excited. [Flyers] [CSN Philly]

*Yesterday's humongous big news was the new Canadian television deal signed between Rogers TV and the NHL. The deal will change the way Canadians view the sport for the next twelve years; but thankfully, it would appear that Don Cherry's job is safe. People were legitimately worried.

*A look at what the new Canadian TV deal means for the Flyers. [Daily News]

*If recent draft analysis is accurate, there will be Chris Prongers for everyone! [BSH]

*Meltzer with some thoughts on the Zac Rinaldo - PK experiment. [Hockeybuzz]

*Handicapping the goalie battles for men's Olympic hockey. [SB Nation]

*Expansion/relocation to Quebec City seems like a foregone conclusion at this point. [ProHockeyTalk]

*The NHL's highest paid players on and off the ice and the best value players in the league. Claude Giroux makes an appearance!

*Referee abuse at the lower levels of the hockey world is leading to fewer new referees every year. It could become a problem. [The Star Phoenix]

*A humorous look at the truth behind recent NHL injuries. [SBN]

*And Happy Thanksgiving wishes from the BSH family. Enjoy your turkey, hockey fans!
