*Because it's hilarious: revisiting the Mike Richards trade. Again. [Inquirer]

*The latest of Friedman's 30 Thoughts also touches on the Flyers need on defense, as well as looking at why all of the Toronto Maple Leaf's woes can be blamed on Randy Carlyle. [Sportsnet]

*Speaking of Randy, he might be getting canned soon, which would be sad for hockey-related comedy. [ProHockeyTalk]

*A look at league-wide scoring chances for defensemen. [Pensburgh]

*If you're playing fantasy hockey, here are three players you should keep an eye on based on the stats. [The Score]

*Derek Boogard's story may make you rethink your stance on fighting in hockey. [On The Forecheck]

*The AHL has suspended a player for using performance enhancing drugs. [The AHL]

*The Sabres have set their course for Connor McDavid and will likely be hard to overtake. [TSN]

*Classic hits from the olden days in the NHL when this kind of thing went unpunished. [Grantland]

*And finally, Todd Fedoruk in a Tigger costume. That is all. [BSH]
