  • And OH MY GOD THE SHAAAAAADE
  • The Canes are not in a playoff spot at Thanksgiving, but at least one pundit gives them better than even odds to be there come April. [The Athletic ($)]
  • The Senators flipped Chris Wideman to the Oilers in a deal you probably missed while recovering from your turkey coma on Thursday. [NHL.com]
  • Speaking of the Senators, the three-ring circus that is their owner’s misadventures continued apace yesterday when the proposed deal to develop a plot of land that would include a new arena went poof thanks to a C$700 million lawsuit. [Ottawa Citizen]
  • Longtime NHL referee Mick McGeough, who officiated three games of the 2006 Stanley Cup Final, died last night at age 62 after suffering a stroke. One of the last referees to forego wearing a helmet, although he eventually came around, McGeough memorably awarded Chris Pronger a penalty shot in Game 1 of the ‘06 Final after Niclas Wallin covered the puck in the crease (photo above). He retired from the NHL and returned to his hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan in 2008.
