Wednesday Knows What's Up

- Craig Hartsburg stepped down from being the Everett Silvertips coach because he is interested in pursuing another chance at an NHL job.

- Nearly the next day, Hartsburg was hired as the Calgary Flames new associate coach.

- Speaking of coaching changes, the Carolina Hurricanes have added Rod Brind'Amour and Dave Lewis as assistant coaches.

- In case you were wondering, Mark Messier finally let loose with his leadership finalists: Zdeno Chara, Nick Lidstrom and Shane Doan.

- The Phoenix Coyotes signed Jason LaBarbera to a two-year contract extension, effectively making Ilya Bryzgalov expendable.

- And more of the same: Bryzgalov's rights were traded to the Philadelphia Flyers for Matt Clackson, 2012 third-round pick and a conditional.

- Daniel Aldredsson is getting back surgery and should be out for 4-8 weeks.

- General Managers are unhappy with the current rulings on headshots and some of them are calling for a broader definition for Rule 48.

- The Binghampton Senators won the Calder Cup against the Houston Aeros in six games. It was the first championship for the team.

- The Pittsburgh Penguins have added Bill Guerin to the team as a player development coach. Or resident comedian to keep Sidney Crosby happy, which ever comes first.

Stanley Cup Finals news:

- Claude Julien is not a Maxim Lapierre fan. At all.

- And neither is Krys Barch from the Dallas Stars. He is not impressed with the way that Lapierre and Burrows play and had some strong words.

- After the hit heard round the world, Nathan Horton will be out for the remainder of the play offs.

- And Aaron Rome was suspended for four games, basically the rest of the play offs as well. The Canucks were not happy with that decision at all.

Draft News:

- Craig Button discusses his top ten in the 2011 draft.

- The four highest rated North American skaters were taken behind the scenes at TD Garden to see how NHL teams get it done.

- Edmonton Oilers' GM Steve Tambellini is entertaining offers for the first overall pick in the 2012 draft. Can you imagine if he would have done that last season?

Winnipeg News:

- What's in a name? John Lu from TSN discusses the predicament of naming the new Winnipeg NHL team.

- Kevin Cheveldayoff was hired as the new Winnipeg GM.

- Andrew Ladd paid a visit to Winnipeg and only had good things to say about the relocation and his impending RFA-ness.
