Update: Makin' moves...
#Isles Transaction: Adam Pelech has been placed on the team's IR list.— New York Islanders (@NYIslanders) January 19, 2016
#Isles Transaction: JF Berube has been activated off the Islanders IR list and loaned to Bridgeport on conditioning.— New York Islanders (@NYIslanders) January 19, 2016
If Hamonic isn't ready by Friday, would go on retroactive IR to make room for call-up. Or #Isles could go with 6D for Fri-Sat (unlikely).— Arthur Staple (@StapeNewsday) January 19, 2016

- The Habs remain in a free fall and Eyes on the Prize runs down 51 possible replacements for Michel Therrien.

- Turning to the wisdom of crowds to fix the Blue Jackets. [The Cannon]
