I've never been to Cabo, but if a trip to Cabo recharges you and ignites your performance like it has Sam Gagner's I think I'll be booking a trip next year. Since the all-star break, when Gagner hung out on the beach for a few short days, Gagner has 19 points in 10 games. He's in a battle with Ilya Kovalchuk to win NHL player of the month for February, both have 18 points in nine games, athough Gagner has nine goals to Kovalchuk's five.
Gagner might get 25 points in February, if he continues his scorching streak over the next four games. He has been incredible over the past month, but when you look closer, Gagner has been pretty solid for more than just ten games.

I don't imagine the Calgary Flames are very happy about getting waxed 6-1 by the Edmonton Oilers in Cowtown tonight, but they'd better get used to it because my guess is there's plenty more to come.

Trade deadline deals should work for both teams. An example: Edmonton acquired Sergei Samsonov in 2006 for assets that included a 2nd rd pick later that year. Boston used it to acquire a big part of their future.

Seemingly, the common reaction to deals like the one inked by Andy Sutton and Cam Barker is straight forward: the Oilers need defensive help, they’re signing guys on short-term deals, and the dollars don’t matter so why worry about them?
There’s a very good reason to worry about them.
