*Not sure how you could see the festivities and energy and passion that surrounded Saturday's first-ever Final game in Nashville and NOT get pumped. We have some things to learn from our Southern friends. [SB Nation]

*A Flyers fan even got in on the fun! And became a hero to us all. [BSH]

*Also imagine being so miserable a person that you don't like P.K. Subban. What a delight. [ProHockeyTalk]

*So the Draft Combine was this weekend, where everyone sits around and evaluates the physical capabilities of highly trained teenaged boys. Patrick and Hischier remain very closely matched. [Inquirer]

*One thing we learned is that Nolan Patrick had not one but TWO sports hernias. We'll see if that affects his draft position in any way (it won't). [BSH]

*So uh...George McPhee has some really nice things to say about Mical Neuvirth. Eyeball emoji. [Inquirer]

*Real talk though there's no way Vegas takes Neuvirth in the draft, right? RIGHT? [BSH]

*Vegas is definitely ready to make some trades, though, and McPhee seems willing to take on some bad contracts if its worth it to him. EYEBALL EMOJI. [Sportsnet]

*The NHL competition committee is set to meet and thank the gods they'll be talking about the offside review. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, in Soviet Russia, hockey makes you! [USA Today]
