*So one last game before the break. Here we go. Time to make up for letting them score a tuddie on us last time. [Inquirer]

*If they’re going to get a win here, though, they’re going to need to really be on their game. [Courier-Post]

*We’ll have The Germ back for this one, which... okay. Morgan Frost is right there, though. [BSH]

*Charlie has some thoughts ahead of this little hockey vacation. [The Athletic]

*When the Kings rolled into town over the weekend, they brought with them a bunch of chatter about a potential Jeff Carter trade. So... would you? [BSH]

*Quite a lot of good rookies this season, huh? Here’s a look at the best. I don’t know about you guys but I find a lot of amusement in the fact that Quinn is the better Hughes. [ProHockeyTalk]

*In stats news, something wacky is going on this season with expected goals. It’s interesting to look at, if you’re into this kind of thing. [TSN]

*Well Bill Peters is a real, real bad dude. Geez. [Yahoo Sports Canada]

*We’ve got a new player poll with lots of players facts contained within, and it’s pretty fun. [The Athletic]

*And finally, you may have heard Charlie interviewing Bill Clement about this event on BSH Radio, but Bill’s got a new passion project that sounds pretty fun, so you should check it out. [The Athletic]
