All of the sudden, NHL hockey is back -- the Sabres and Hurricanes play a weather makeup game tonight, before the full schedule kicks in Wednesday -- and when there's not hockey there is plenty of trade deadline speculation to go around.

For the Islanders, Thursday will begin a run of six games in nine days. But last night's news was the call has come in: Ryan Strome, Anders Lee and Mike Halmo all get recalled on emergency basis. For the latter, it's a bit of an unexpected recall and may be short-lived -- Matt Martin has been rehabbing an injury -- but it's a reward for hard work and a good season.
