Bye Bye Brookbank

The Carolina Hurricanes pulled off one of those goofy pick-for-rights trades today and acquired the pesky Darcy Hordichuk from Nashville in exchange for a fifth-round pick in next year's draft.

As Bubba points out, that likely spells the end of Wade Brookbank's 'Canes career (and at just 32 games), which is too bad. He'll be missed:

Far more important in the TSN story is the signing of Tim Gleason for four years at $2.75 million per year.

Gleason is three years older and got 19 points last year (3 goals). If he gets almost $3 million for that kind of season, how much should Green get for his season? Nevermind that he's three years younger. This could get very ugly.

Sigh. No more "hairy eyebrow" jokes from JP about Wade B.
