Fascinating what-if story here: What if Colorado had dealt Owen Nolan to Montreal for Patrick Roy in 1995? What would the Avs have traded for the San Jose Sharks’ Sandis Ozolinsh?

This is no what-if: The Vincent Damphousse trade to the San Jose Sharks is the fourth-worst trade in Montreal history. (Montreal Gazette)

Great story about Per Mars and his skate blade (and roller blades) that have changed the NHL. (The Athletic)
