Columbus Blue Jackets ship Dubois & 3rd round pick to Winnipeg Jets for Laine, Roslovic: Blue Jackets trade the disgruntled center to the Winnipeg Jets and a 3rd round pick for 2 skilled forwards – Patrik Laine and Jack Roslovic, an unsigned restricted free agent from Columbus who is currently training with the Ohio AAA Blue Jackets while unsigned. Dubois, 22, requested a trade upon signing a two-year contract extension the week prior to the start of training camp Jan. 4 at Nationwide Arena. The team’s former No. 1 center didn’t publicly offer a reason, but it’s believed to be multi-faceted – tied to both prolonged contract negotiations and a feuding relationship with coach John Tortorella.

Russian NHL Star Artemi Panarin Has Opinions: ...very strong opinions.

Artemi Panarin is one of the most dynamic hockey players in the world. Nicknamed Breadman (because of the similarity of his last name to the popular Panera Bread bakery chain) he also has a reputation of one of the most sincere, charismatic, likeable players in the NHL. Recently, Panarin has signed with the New York Rangers after refusing better deals from other teams. But earlier this week, Artemi did something truly unthinkable: he utterly trashed Russia’s president Vladimir Putin and his regime in an extremely candid interview with the Vsemu Golovin Youtube channel.

The New York Yankees also dropped her song. Smith's ouster was sparked by two songs she performed in the 1930s that are staggeringly racist today.

"That stuff bothers me." Later he softened his tone and said, "He said our guy challenged him, so if that's the case, it's a little different."

Those qualities — plus his enormous talent — made him one of the most memorable and controversial players in NHL history and a fan favorite for decades in metro Detroit, where he lived for more than 70 years.
