Well, I can't believe it. The Senators managed to move their young Russian troublemaker, Alexander Nikulin, to a place where they enjoy having young players... Phoenix. The Coyotes passed up on minor-league defender, Drew Fata, whom they acquired from the Rangers.

The Sens were thought to be having a hard time moving the Russian, but they finally had a good suitor. Nikulin will likely have to play full-time for the Coyotes or their AHL affiliate before he's disgruntled again, so stay tuned.
