*But barring some huge catastrophic meltdown, Stolarz isn't going to see any time. [Courier-Post]

*You know, when things are extra crappy around here we can always look at the Leafs and then feel better about ourselves. [Sportsnet]

*On the media, "clickbait", and entitlement. [The Faceoff Circle]

*If you're a frequent viewer of Hockey Night in Canada you're probably not happy with the changes that came with this year's new broadcaster. [Pension Plan Puppets]
