Happy Easter everyone! I hope you've all gotten sufficiently full on ham, chocolate, and the blood of Jesus. Before settling in for a late nap/early bed time here's First Star, Worst Star rising from the dead like the Easter Bunny!

The playoff dream for the Panthers may be all but dead at this point, but it’s still been a pretty interesting season in Sunrise. The Panthers have an exciting core of young players, but perhaps the most interesting aspect of the team is they boast both the NHL’s active leader in wins for a goaltender and points scored by a skater. It’s an interesting blend of young talent and veteran legacy, that’s for sure.
I’m sure most people know that already, but Roberto Luongo and Jaromir Jagr have both been tearing up their respective all time leader boards this season. Jagr currently sits fourth all time with 1,798 points, while Luongo is 11th all time with 400 wins.
Realistically, where will these guys end up? Can Luongo get anywhere near Patrick Roy and Martin Brodeur? Can Jagr surpass Gordie Howe and Mark Messier and become the second more prolific scorer in league history?

A month ago, we watched as one of the most interesting trade deadlines in recent memory unfolded. It appeared as if the deadline itself was going to be relatively anticlimactic since most of the big name players were moved before the big day. Much to everyone’s surprise, deadline day saw a flurry of moves with a handful of surprising names swapping jerseys.
How do some of those interesting moves look a month later? Let’s take a look (at 10 of them!)

Other than the Stanley Cup deciding game, the biggest moment of this NHL season will arguably be who wins the draft lottery.
In a regular draft class that wouldn't be the case, but this season is anything but ordinary with the generational-looking Connor McDavid to be had at first overall and a first-overall-pick-in-any-other-year player in Jack Eichel waiting to go second.
