The past few days have been fairly quiet in terms of hockey news. There are two big questions hanging out there in Coyotes land. Is this the week Shane Doan decides where he's going to spend the rest of his career and is this the week the Jamison Group will close the deal on purchasing the club? We've got a few links for you today and many of them somehow include number #19.

Also, Happy Birthday to The Dude today! We assume he's spending the big day watching The Big Lebowski on a loop.
