MINNEAPOLIS -- Greetings from sunny Minneapolis, where the locals take advantage of the sunshine by crowding the streets and the food trucks. It's a mob scene out there.
Just finished with a lengthy but productive meeting of the Professional Hockey Writers Association, but here are a few quick updates:
*Stay with BuffaloNews.com for an announcement that Buffalo is reuniting with Rochester, as alluded to in this morning's story.
*The new team in Winnipeg is expected to announce its nickname as the Jets tonight.
*Tampa Bay defenceman Eric Brewer has agreed to a four-year deal that will pay him just under $16 million.
