Welcome to the best years of your life. How to be Single was not really a film that was on my radar back when it came out in 2016, in fact I don’t even remember watching a trailer for it. However during a night of Netflix binging I decided to give it a watch- purely […]

The trade deadline is less than 72 hours away. We could see some highly skilled players traded before Monday’s 1 p.m. MST deadline. Matt Duchene and Mark Stone were healthy scratches by the Ottawa Senators last night as they didn’t want to risk injury and get nothing for the pending unrestricted free agents. Duchene was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets this morning. That move likely takes Artemi Panarin off the market, along with Sergei Bobrovsky. Will the Sabres deal Jeff Skinner if they don’t have a contract extension in place? This should be a wild next few days. The race in the East is between Montreal, Pittsburgh, Columbus and Carolina. One of them will miss, unless Buffalo or Philadelphia go on an amazing run. The Blue Jackets’ addition of Duchene was a big win for them, because some Eastern teams were hoping Panarin was on the market. Now he isn’t so they won’t get better, while the Blue Jackets add a legit top-six forward in Duchene. The Blue Jackets gave up their 2019 first rounder and prospects Jonathon Davidsson (sixth rounder, 2017) who is playing in Sweden and had 10-10-20 in 30 games, and Vitaly Abramov (third rounder, 2016) who has 12-10-22 in 52 games in the AHL for Duchene. If he re-signs with the Jackets Ottawa will receive Columbus’ 2020 first round pick as well. The Senators should get a lot for Mark Stone and a decent return for Ryan Dzingel, but they are still losing three legit forwards and picks and prospects are never guaranteed to pan out. It is not an ideal situation for the Senators. As you update your phone by the minute this weekend, here is an outline of each team’s 2019 draft picks. 2019 Draft Picks 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th NYI 1 1 NA NA 1 1 1 WSH 1 1 1 1 1 NA 1 PITT 1 NA NA 1 1 1 1 TAMPA 1* NA* 1 1 NA 1 2 TOR NA 1 1 2 1 NA 2 BOS 1 1 1 1 NA 1 1 MTL 1 2 1 1 3 1 1 CAR 1 2 1 1 1 2 1 CBJ NA NA 1 1 NA NA 2 BUFF 3 NA 1 1 NA 2 1 PHI 1 1 2 1 1 2 2 FLOR 1 1 1 3 1 1 1 DET 1 2 1 1 3 1 1 NYR 1* 1 1 NA 1 1 NA OTT 1 2 1 1 1 NA 2 Washington and Pittsburgh don’t have a lot of top prospects in their system. The Penguins moved Daniel Sprong earlier this year to Anaheim. Zach Aston-Reese is already on their team and Dominik Simon and Tristan Jarry would be the other young players they might be able to offer if they are looking to make a big addition.Tampa Bay has the asterisk because if they win the Stanley Cup the Rangers get their 2019 first rounder. If they don’t, the Rangers get their second round pick. Toronto gave up their first when they acquired Jake Muzzin. For the Capitals, goalie Ilya Samsanov is their best prospect, but I doubt they move him. I really like Red Deer Rebels D-man Alexander Alexeyev, and they also have Lucas Johansen, Connor Hobbs and Jonas Siegenthaler. I could see the Pens and Capitals tinker, but the Caps don’t have any cap space so it will be hard for them to make a major addition. They acquired D-man Nick Jensen and a 5th round pick in exchange for defender Madison Bowey and a 2nd. The Islanders have loads of cap room. I heard they had interest in Panarin, but I don’t see him being on the move. They also have many really good prospects. I could see them making multiple moves. They need another scoring winger. The Bruins already added Charlie Coyle, but they still have decent amount of cap space if they want to add some more. They and the Maple Leafs are in an interesting spot. They will face each other in the first round and, barring a major upset, the stacked Tampa Bay Lightning in the second round. I think both of them would need to add something significant to defeat the Lightning. Tampa will likely tinker, but they don’t need to make a major splash. They are the best, and deepest, team in the NHL. Montreal and Carolina are interesting. The Habs have been a major surprise all season. They are ahead of where the organization thought they’d be. Do they try and match Columbus’ addition of Duchene, or do they stay patient, not give up much, and try to grind their way into the playoffs? Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon desperately wants to make the playoffs. Carolina has missed the postseason dance for the past nine years and Dundon has no interest in tying the Florida Panthers and Edmonton Oilers record of ten years without the playoffs. They have the most cap space in the NHL and Dundon isn’t afraid to spend money — he just invested $250 million in the AAF — and if GM Don Waddell can find a good deal the Hurricanes will make a move. The rest of the East will be sellers. Wayne Simmonds, Mike Hoffman, Kevin Hayes, Mats Zuccarello, Gustav Nyquist, Marcus Johansson are the most likely names to be moved. I do wonder if the Red Wings would part with Jimmy Howard? THE WEST… 2019 Draft Picks 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th CGY 1 NA 1 1 1 NA 1 SJ NA 1 1 NA 1 1 1 NSH 1 NA 1 2 1 1 1 WPG 1 1 NA 1 1 1 1 VEG 1 1 3 1 3 NA NA STL NA 1 1 NA 1 1 1 DAL 1 1 1 1 1 1 NA COL 2 1 2 NA 1 1 1 MINN 1 1 1 NA 1 2 1 CHI 1 1 NA 2 1 1 1 ARI 1 1 2 1 NA 2 NA VAN 1 1 1 1 1 3 1 ANA 1 1 NA 1 1 1 NA EDM 1 1 1 1 NA 1 1 LA 2 1 1 2 1 1 1 San Jose already made their major move acquiring Erik Karlsson last summer. They don’t have a first rounder in 2019 or 2020, but I still expect Doug Wilson to make some sort of move. The Sharks will go for it this year. They have enough cap space to be creative, and I suspect they’ll make a depth trade more than a major splash. They are the best team in the West in my eyes right now, so I don’t expect a major move. The Flames are very good as well, but they’d like another scorer. GM Brad Treliving said this about rental players. “Every year, there are players on expiring contracts and they always get attention. Each year, especially in this country (Canada), it becomes bigger and bigger, gets more attention. Traditionally, I haven’t been a big fan of the rental market. Expending assets for something short in time, that’s difficult in a cap-based system. We’ve spent picks before but all for players with term. We’ll have to see how it plays out. You stay in touch with the marketplace and talk to other teams, but we’ll wait and see and watch how things go. It can be a dangerous game, getting involved and spending a lot of assets for something that’s real short-term.” He also had an interesting quote to Eric Francis about “window to win.” “The other thing I caution everybody with is the idea we are ‘entering a window.’ You never know when your time is. There are guys who show up their first year, make the final and never get there again. We know the core of this team is young and hopefully will continue to get better. But you never take anything for granted in this game — it has a way of humbling you if you do.” I could see the Flames making a move, but not sure it will be a big name. More of a depth move, which as Washington showed last year can often be more impactful than a big name. Nashville needs another scorer. I don’t think they have enough high-powered offensive players to win the Cup right now. David Poile has done a great job developing players, and the Predators have only had two picks in the top-40 in the past four seasons. Most of the NHL’s elite scorers were drafted high. Yes, there are a few exceptions, but the vast majority are high picks. The Predators were in on Duchene, and I wonder if they switch their focus to Stone. The Jets are also very good, but Patrik Laine has really struggled and Nick Ehlers is just returning from injury. They have many good young players, so they can afford to add a big name. The Blues are on fire. They made a lot of changes in the off-season, so I see them more tweaking on the edges rather than making a big move. Vegas is the wildcard. They are 4-8-1 in their last 13 games and could use another scorer. They don’t want to be a one-year wonder and lose out in the first round, but right now I don’t see them beating the Flames or Sharks in the first round unless they add some more firepower. The teams in the race for the wildcard are also unknowns. Minnesota has already made two hockey trades in 2019., shipping out Charlie Coyle and Nino Niederreiter for Viktor Rask and Ryan Donato. They need more offence. Dallas should be a playoff team, but injuries have hampered them all season. I could see them adding a D-man or a depth forward. Colorado has Ottawa’s first round pick, which should for sure be top-four, so maybe they are willing to move their first rounder to get in the playoffs. They need to shore up their defence. Chicago won big in their Dylan Strome trade and managed to offload Brandon Manning to Edmonton. Stan Bowman would love to sneak into the playoffs and they have a lot of cap space to make some moves. I’d be surprised if he didn’t add something. Chicago is more talented than the other teams battling for the final wildcard spot. Their issue is they can’t stop allowing goals. They need a steady defender, and I wonder if they look to add a goalie — Jimmy Howard perhaps? Arizona continues to stick around and they too have been crushed by injuries. They’d love to make the playoffs, but I don’t see them sacrificing too much for rental. I see them tinkering. I’d be surprised if the Canucks make a big move. They have overachieved all year, and I think management might just ride that out and see if they can sneak in. The Ducks are an interesting team because their GM is now on the bench and in the room daily. He will have a better feel of who he wants around. They just extended Jakob Silfverberg so they won’t be moving him. The Ducks’ top forwards are getting older and the team doesn’t have much cap space. I could see them be a seller more than a buyer. The Oilers might do very little. Maybe they ship out a depth player or two. At this point I think it is more likely they keep Alex Chiasson unless they get a prospect in return. They would like to shed some salary for next year. What are your predictions for the deadline? Who gets Stone? Will the Sabres move Skinner? Who needs to make a move? Which team will improve the most by Monday at 2 p.m. MST?

THREE Cabinet ministers go public with their threat to delay Brexit if Tory hardliners vote down Theresa May’s plan for a new EU deal. In a joint statement, Greg Clark, Amber Rudd and David Gauke issue a thinly veiled signal that they will side with backbench rebels next week to stop Britain tumbling out without a deal on March 29. Amber Rudd issued a thinly veiled signal that they will side with backbench rebels next week Business Secretary Greg Clark is part of the trio of ministers who threaten Brexit delay over PM’s new deal The bombshell move made by the trio including David Gauke – ahead of a ‘high noon’ showdown in the Commons next week – is a major challenge to the PM’s authority The Business Secretary, Work and Pensions Secretary and Justice Secretary make it clear they would defy No10 to vote to extend Article 50 exit talks. That would see Britain stay in the EU for several more months under a deal can be struck. The bombshell move – ahead of a ‘high noon’ showdown in the Commons next week – is a major challenge to the PM’s authority. But allies of the three ministers insisted it is designed to help Mrs May in her titanic battle with Tory arch-Eurosceptic group, the ERG. To stave off their rebellion, the three senior ministers also want the PM to promise to extend Article 50 herself. The three Cabinet heavyweights said: “It is time that many of our Conservative party colleagues in the ERG recognise that Parliament will stop a disastrous no deal Brexit on March 29. “If that happens, they will have no one to blame but themselves for delaying Brexit.” Justice Secretary David Gauke also told The Sun: “We want to deliver a deal so that Britain can leave the EU on March 29. “But time is running out, and those determined to vote against a deal that the PM wants to bring back are running the risk of a delay in Brexit.” A bid for Parliament to seize control of Brexit and delay it was voted down four weeks ago by a majority of 23. CRUNCH COMMONS VOTE Just 12 Tory ministers or MPs need to switch sides for the attempt to hijack power from No10 to win when it is pushed to a vote again on Wednesday. The vote on Wednesday next week poses the biggest crisis for Theresa May’s premiership since the disastrous general election result in 2017. She will ask the Commons for permission to continue talks with Brussels for legally binding changes to the Irish backstop to ensure it is only temporary. In their statement – delivered via an article for the Daily Mail – the threesome also warn a No Deal Brexit could threaten the United Kingdom itself, by giving the SNP a fresh opportunity to enforce a second referendum for Scottish independence. The Cabinet ministers added: “It does not take much of a leap of imagination to see how the Scots Nationalists would seek to seize the chance to break up Great Britain”. The Sun understands that No10 was shown a copy of the article, but not given any opportunity to stop it. If ERG hardliners do defeat the Government, then Ms Rudd, Mr Clarke and Mr Gauke want Mrs May to step in and promise to abide by an open vote in Parliament by mid-March for a Brexit delay. A source close to the Cabinet ministers said: “They hope it won’t be necessary. “But if it is, ministers will vote for the Cooper-Letwin amendment on Wednesday to give it a clear majority, and those ministers will include Greg, David and Amber. “The Prime Minister can stop them from having to do that by agreeing to extend Article 50 herself if the Commons asks for it.” TENSIONS SPIRAL IN PARLIAMENT The source added: “At some point, she is going to have to take on the ERG, it’s that simple”. But as tensions spiralled ahead of next week’s showdown, some Tory MP Brexiteers threatened to “end the government” if Mrs May requests an extension to Article 50. One MP from the ERG told the Financial Times: “If she said she’d extend Article 50, there’d be 20-plus MPs who would just take their bat and ball home: no domestic legislation, no Brexit legislation, they just wouldn’t be showing up any more”. Moderate Tory MPs from the 100-strong Brexit Delivery Group also pledged to join the rebellion against No Deal. Its leader, senior Tory backbencher Andrew Percy, told The Sun that “three dozen” of its members would now back Cooper-Letwin amendment. And he urged his “fellow Brexiteers” to wake up. BREXITEERS TOLD TO ‘WAKE UP’ He told The Sun: “There’s 100 of them in a bunker, surrounded by 500 people outside, encircled by them. They are not getting to get what they want. They have to wake up and smell the coffee. “They have to start living in the real world. The only way we can get out is to back the PM’s deal – with a legal change or a change to the backstop. “They are playing into the hands of Remainers in Parliament who are trying to stitch this up and stop Brexit from happening.” [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN POLITICS” posts_category=”318″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] Robert Buckland became the latest Tory minister to say he is also prepared to by defy the party whip next week to vote for the Cooper-Letwin amendment to delay Brexit without a deal. Risking the sack, the Solicitor General told BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions: “I’ll do whatever it takes to stop No Deal. Nobody voted for a crash out. “No self respecting Tory Government should ever deliberately inflict an act of self harm on the people we represent.” In another fresh blow for the PM, the DUP said it was also going cold again on her watered down backstop changes – with the Ulster unionists’ Brexit spokesman Sammy Wilson saying their support for her next week “at the moment doesn’t look very likely”. Theresa May faces a major threat to her authority if rebellion goes ahead next week Tory backbencher Andrew Percy, told The Sun that ‘three dozen’ of its members would now back Cooper-Letwin amendment DUP, led by Arlene Foster, said it was also going cold again on her watered down backstop changes [bc_video video_id=”6005143716001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Anna Soubry’s furious constituent tells her locals are ‘disgusted’ she quit over Brexit and joined a Remainer group”] GOT a story?
