* If you missed it on Friday, Charlie argues that the Voracek extension might just be closer to a bargain than an overpay: [BSH]

* Another look at the work to be done on the salary cap: [Sons of Penn]

* Did you hear about the destruction of HitchBOT in Philadelphia this past week? You'll never guess who was responsible! Wow! [Pattison Avenue]

* More legal talk! An update on the whole situation with Mike Richards, who has still not had a grievance officially filed on his behalf by the NHLPA: [Forbes]

* The Leafs and Jonathan Bernier agreed to a two-year deal worth $4.15 million per year. Right in line with Steve Mason's deal: [PPP]

* The 2022 Winter Olympics will be held in Beijing. Anyone want to guess whether or not NHL players will be there? [SBNation]
