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 L.A. Kings have put to bed Devin Setoguchi's comeback, as he joins all of the major signings the team made last summer on the waiver wire. Brent Burns is on pace for the best season we've seen from a defenceman in a long time (don't tell Erik Karlsson).

The NHLN Notebook is a semi-regular feature of interesting hockey content from the past few days that doesn't quite deserve its own article. 

The Nashville Predators are finally getting things figured out after a forgettable start, and are looking like the team that was projected by many to be a Stanley Cup Contender. The Leafs lost to the Sens in a shootout, causing Leafs Twitter to question the validity of a skills competition deciding games. And finally, the Minnesota Wild have a wealth of solid blue liners on their roster, but with expansion looming, they're at risk of losing some of them for nothing.
