Our weekly selection of hockey moves that leave us scratching our heads. Started back in 2007, HotW was an institution around these parts or years. As research time became more scarce, we let it lapse, but by the grace of a Gordie Hull Hat Trick, it's back!

We don't recommend that any of these feats be attempted at home, nor do we suggest that you you these fine folks as role models for your children.

For the Week of 11/10/08
New York Rangers

The untimely passing of New York Rangers top draft pick Alexei Cherepanov was was shadowed by the untimely request by the Rangers to be compensated for Cherepanov following his death. Rangers GM Glen Sather believes that the Rangers should receive the 17th selection in the second round of June's draft as compensation for losing Cherepanov, the 17th overall selection in the 2006 Draft who died in Russia on Oct. 13 while playing for Omsk.

"At this point, the league has taken no position on the Rangers' request," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told the New York Post. "The matter is in front of the league's general managers, who will address the subject at their next meeting in March. It's possible that the language of the CBA would need to be amended to address situations such as this one. If that's the case, then we would need to negotiate that with the Players' Association."

"It seems now as if that phrase is unintentionally precluding the deceased from being included as eligible for compensation," Rangers assistant GM Cam Hope told The Post. "We understand that this is a sensitive issue, but with all due respect to Alexei's family and his memory, he is technically eligible to be drafted again next year."

Technically eligible to be drafted again next year???? Omsk my God, did he really say that?

"We are not attempting to capitalize on a tragedy, but there would be no question regarding the Rangers' right to a compensatory pick if Cherepanov had been revived and survived the incident and were on life support ... If an unsigned player sustained a massive injury on or off the ice, the drafting team would get a compensatory pick."

In other news, Sather is rumored to be shopping his great grandmother's head stone to granite wholesalers in the greater New York metro area.
