As expected the news is starting to slow down this time of year, and the news that is coming through is primarily focused on the two teams vying for the Stanley Cup. And who cares about those guys anyways? Luckily there is a silver lining in the clouds that are offseason hockey, and that is that the @Biznasty2point0 Twitter feed is back in full force. Paul Bissonnette had a picture with perhaps the name that is most associated with hockey. Thats right there is a picture with him and Paulina Gretzky, I guess her dad was someone but that is unconfirmed. Also we have good news for the Coyotes future. Two of the Coyotes prospects were in the news, Brandon Gromley is going to be playing for the Memorial Cup and Brendan Shinnimin was named the Player of the Year and the Top Scorer of the Year.
Those stories and more all below after the jump.
