Im saying no one in the history of the NHL has ever completed the trifecta that Blue Jackets center Mark Letestu did last week: In the same week, Letestu scored a huge OT goal to beat the Anaheim Ducks at Nationwide Arena, he signed a two-year contract extension with Columbus, and he gave up his 10 jersey to all-star winger Marian Gaborik, after Gaborik was acquired on trade deadline day by the Blue Jackets.

While I understand some fans appreciate powerforwards more so than pure snipers, I try not to weigh one skill set vs. the other. At the end of the day, teams need skill and will players to create offensive balance. Indeed, Gaborik wasn’t one who created offense by lugging the puck...

Dear Blackhawks, Red Wings, and Maple Leafs fans... Your trade deadlines kicked ass!
