Your Friendly Weekend Links Roundup: The Nick Bonino Goes To Europe Edition

Woo! I get to play hockey again! I don't have to spend everyday in my apartment playing Call of Duty! - Harry How

Nick Bonino goes to Europe, Scott Niedermayer is inducted into the Hall of Fame (not the one you're thinking of), and of course, there are currently no CBA talks on the table.

Nick Bonino was prepared to go to Norfolk when the lockout began, but he would've had to clear waivers (and as an emerging defensive center, he would've almost definitely been claimed by another team). So he made the right decision and went to Europe.
