The transmitter I slipped into Steve Tambellini's overcoat last week has stopped working, so I'm as much in the dark as everybody else trying to figure out what the Edmonton Oilers GM has cooking going into Monday's NHL trade deadline.* Anybody got a flashlight?

This is Gilbert Perreault. Buffalo's new owner loved watching him play, and with good reason. Perreault was a wonderful talent, a breathtaking skater with a punishing shot and a sublime ability to deke the opposition out of their jocks.

2. Secondly – damn you to hell Erik Cole.
