Friday, Nov. 25: Why Goligoski and Yandle signed early


Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while lamenting the lack of leftover turkey in my fridge. 

*Good piece from FOH (Friend of Haggs) Alex Prewitt on free agent D-men Alex Goligoski and Keith Yandle and how they were convinced to sign ahead of the July 1 open of free agency. 

*The Florida Panthers aren’t in a playoff position at the Thanksgiving holiday, but they’re not worried about it either. 

*PHT writer James O’Brien says that the Jonathan Toews' injury is a reminder of just how shaky the Blackhawks are in the lineup depth department. 

*On Frederik Andersen, the only Danish netminder in NHL history making his way with the Maple Leafs. 

*Speaking of Thanksgiving, the Canadian teams are looking good at the US holiday after missing out on the playoffs completely last year. 

*In this holiday of thankfulness, Patrick Sharp is glad that the NHL is attempting to affect change in the concussion culture. 

*For something completely different: is the American mafia on the rise again in the United States?
