The Comets technically played three games last week, but they also played on Monday for the first time in a couple of years, so I've just including that one in this review. In those four games, Utica won twice and lost twice, which seems to indicate that the massive periods of streakiness are finally over.
That's a little unfortunate, because they could really use a big fat win streak right now. Read along to see a detailed breakdown of the Comets' week that was.

Trade deadline is fast approaching, now just one week away, and the Canucks are smack in the middle of a bye week. What do you get when those factors are combined? There's nothing to talk about but trade possibilities!
While the previous deadlines under Benning have given fans good reason to be skeptical of whether they'll actually sell assets this time around, that possibility appears to have taken one more step towards reality with word getting out that Jannik Hansen has given a list of teams for which he would waive his modified NTC.

With a week to go to the trade deadline rumors are swirling and J.D. Burke and myself talk about the latest rumors and we also welcome goalie guru Greg Balloch from In-Goal magazine to the show to talk Canucks goalies.
Canuck nation was on pins and needles with word that Linden and Aquilini taking a private plane to LA and Bob McKenzie got fans talking by mentioning Ben Hutton as a trade option.

It's bye week for the Canucks, which means that we won't have any games to reflect on until Saturday. That's in part why the talk of the town this week has been the trade deadline, which is one week away. The Canucks have a few players on expiring contracts and could use to recoup some assets, as well as shed non-exempt players in preparation for the expansion draft.
After asking how the Canucks should approach the deadline this time around, this week we'll get more specific. Who would you like to see traded at the deadline? Don't be afraid to get creative.

The Nation Network Notebook is a regular feature that rounds up interesting news, stories, and rumours from around the NHL that don't quite deserve their own article.
The Tampa Bay Lightning are facing the reality of having to sell at the deadline, while their neighbors in down south Florida have rocketed up the standings after finally getting fully healthy. Also, Jonathan Toews is doing his best to put to bed the narrative that he's over the hill.
