Big Shake Up In Buffalo Imminent?

Sources everywhere are talking about how the Buffalo Sabres will be very aggressive from after the All Star Break till the trade deadline. I wouldn't be surprised if they pull off a blockbuster.

Blue Jackets Rumor.

Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal is reportin that the Columbus Blue Jackets are trying to get rid of Steve Mason. However, no one wants his $3.2 Million contract. A last ditch resort is putting him on re-entry waivers and see if anyone is willing to pay $1.6 Million for him. Personally, I would love to have a young guy like him on my team for $1.6 Million. He's young, has potential, and just needs some help.

Sidney Crosby Injury Update

Today, Penguins captain, Sidney Crosby, was diagnosed with a neck injury while in Los Angeles. Over the next 48 hours, specialists will analyze Crosby's CAT scans and MRIs to determine the full extent of the injury.

To recap, Crosby had just come back from a concussion obtained from a hit by Lightning's defenseman Victor Hedman on January 5, 2011. He played in 8 regular season games in the 2011/12 season until he was sidelined again after experiencing concussion-like symptoms after a collision with Bruins' forward David Krejci.
Crosby is still expected to play with his club this season but there is no timetable for his return.
