*Okay we are headed into a long weekend so let's keep things short and light: Scott Hartnell is being bought out by the Columbus Blue Jackets. Come back to us, Scott! [BSH]

*But maybe not any more because late last night Jordan Weal re-signed! [BSH]

*We still need a dang goalie. And it's not going to be Steve Mason ... but it might be Brian Elliott? [BSH]

*Some more thoughts on the former Flames netminder: [BSH]

*Or maybe we try out Antti Niemi? (Ed. note: NO THANKS) [CSN Philly]

*The Flyers may have gotten themselves a steal in a later round of this year's entry draft. [The Hockey Writers]

*Let's take a look back at some blockbusters of years past, the fun kind that never happen anymore, and see how they hold up. [Sportsnet]

*88 things about Eric Lindros that are just as great as he is. [Inquirer]

*And finally, kill some time on your last work day before the long weekend with this Dave Hakstol interview in which he addresses the Brayden Schenn trade, the Jordan Weal situation (prior to last night, of course), and our new favorite hockey player Nolan Patrick. [BSH]
