• It’s our annual trade deadline issue, so we tackle how to fix three of the NHL’s most broken teams: Ottawa, Calgary and Toronto.

• In Inside Hockey, we look at the world of hockey gambling in Las Vegas and why it won’t evolve into a big-time venture; the best and worst of the hockey world appears in plus-minus; Tessa Bonhomme, the first overall pick of the women’s league draft, writes about the young league; we talk to play-by-play man David Simms about the English League brawl he called this season; and more.

• In Proteau Type, Adam Proteau writes that, while superstar players are certainly integral to success, so are the under-the-radar depth players who can be all the difference in the post-season.

• In his editor’s notebook, Jason Kay writes that the word “genius” is thrown around a lot in NHL management circles and that, eventually, even the brightest minds trip up.

• We talk to NHL managers, scouts and more to formulate a ranking of NHL bluelines. Find out who tops the list and who sinks to the bottom.

• In our Team Reports, we look at the improvement in Mike Green’s defensive play at the expense of offensive numbers, Patrick Sharp’s move to the back end on the power play and more. Plus, we include depth charts for each NHL team, complete with individual salary cap hits, spares, injuries and who’s next in line for a call-up.

• In Prospect Report we look at Teemu Pulkkinen, a Detroit Red Wings pick; and Charlie Pelnik, a young defenseman from North Carolina who is in line to become an NHL prospect one day.

• We look back at the troubled life of Don Gallinger, who at one time was banned from the NHL for gambling, which led to later struggles.

• In overtime, Ken Campbell writes that new Buffalo Sabres owner Terry Pegula is a welcome change, but that alone won’t immediately improve the team’s fortunes.

• In Beyond the Spotlight we look at the surprise world championship won by a team from B.C., 50 years ago and how it helped develop hockey roots in the region.

• In Backchecking we catch up to goalie Jeff Reese, who went on to become a goalie coach after his playing days ended.

• In last minute of play, Larry Humber’s crossword puzzle provides a challenge; Jersey Hound pictures the Tampa Bay Lightning’s new look; and our Blast From the Past includes a shot of Pat Quinn as a member of the Atlanta Flames.
