*Matthew Strome is not a good skater, we know this people! But did you know he is an excellent hockey player in other areas of the ice? In our on-going Top 25 Under 25, Strome is ranked at 24. [BSH]

*Ron Hextall has hinted at bringing two rookie defensemen aboard the ship next year, could Phil Myers or Travis Sanheim be one of them? [Flyerdelphia]

*The Flyers have not had luck with KHL players of late, and when they have they're traded away and win Vezina trophies. But have they been burning bridges with KHL teams? [PhillyisFlyer]

*Imagine a world where the Rangers’ starting goalie was Al Montoya for the last 10 years, and not Henrik Lundqvist. That would be a fantastic world to live in. What if instead of the Dallas Stars selecting Henrik’s brother, Joel, they took the King? [Puck Daddy]
