Continuing to make his way through some of the worst sweaters in the NHL, Dany Heatley was traded to the Minnesota Wild over the weekend. When reached for comment, Heatley said, “I’ve always had a reputation for not performing in the playoffs. So I’m excited to play for a team that doesn’t usually make the playoffs.” Problem solved.

"Ingrediamini aquilonis…"
As the members of the Atlanta Thrashers pack up their gear, families, and social lives, and prepare to move to the bustling city of Winnipeg, we bid a sad farewell to the NHL’s first Guardian. 
According to his origin story, “His entire flight suit and canopy are infused with stealth technology,” because if there’s one thing that hockey needed in the city of Atlanta, it was secrecy. Mission accomplished. And then there’s this: “For propulsion, the Thrasher uses twin turbine jet engines attached to his boots.  Two more jets are located on his forearms…” Who better to protect the Thrashers from a move to Winnipeg than a Guardian who is actually made of Jets?
And so, the Thrasher died as he lived: with no one really paying attention, while working on ways to turn himself into a Jet. 
In lieu of flowers, mourners are asked to send booze, pornography, and travel vouchers to the players in the Thrasher/Jet organization.
