*The newly-formed NHL franchise in Seattle took a look around the league, at the group of 35 or so men deemed qualified to be an NHL head coach, and said, “It’s Dave Hakstol. Dave Hakstol will lead us.” What a time to be alive. [BSH]

*Dave was in Toronto this season, so here’s what the folks covering them had to say about it. [Pension Plan Puppets]

*Speaking of the Kraken, we’re going to start looking at the players that are most likely to be chosen in the draft, starting with the most obvious choice. [BSH]

*Anyway, the Flyers. The Jack Eichel buzz continues for now. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Shayne Gostisbehere had a good season. A genuinely good season. What does that mean for his future with the Flyers? [The Athletic]

*Let’s take a look at this defensemen-on-the-market situation. There are a lot of options Chuck can go with, which is good. [Inquirer]

*The Flyers will also need a backup goaltender, probably. Some options there as well. [On The Forecheck]

*Next up on our draft board is a kid called Chaz. How could you possibly go wrong with a kid named Chaz? [BSH]

*Rumours abound, friends! And they will for the foreseeable. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, we evaluate players in a bad way. All of us. We just do. [BSH]
