Halmo to the Bolts: Saturday notes

After four-plus seasons, Halmo departs seventh in goals (56) and seventh in PIM (388) in his 214 games as a Sound Tiger (tied for 10th with Trevor Smith). Here’s hoping we don’t see him in Syracuse.

Moving Parts: Robin Short notes that Laval is set to take on the Habs’ farm team in 2017. Senators-to-Belleville at the same time appears just about done, reports the Ottawa Citizen.

Rather cool: Lin-Manuel Miranda reads an Alexander Hamilton letter to Betsey Schuyler. While I’m very glad Miranda turned an OK “One Last Ride” into the best song in the musical*, I sincerely hope he’s stepping away from performing to finally write that Whiskey Rebellion show we’ve all been waiting for.

And RIP, Peter Powers.

*-OK, best in context. I’ll take “Say No To This” as the best song per se, and I won’t argue your favorite. And no, only heard the album.
