*If Pat Maroon and the Lightning win again, it’ll be three in a row for him. That’s wild. [ProHockeyTalk]

*There are a lot of reasons to root for the Habs in this series, but perhaps the most relevant to your interest is the success of former Flyer good guy Luke Richardson. [The Athletic]

*We made our predictions for the series yesterday and we are all over the dang place with this one. [BSH]

*I don’t think there is any question that the player to watch at training camp in a couple of months will be Cam York. [Inquirer]

*We’re back to the defense with the latest pick on our Community Draft Board. [BSH]

*Conn Smythe; who ya got? Carey Price still seems like the safe bet. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Whenever we get around to talking about how to prevent dirty hits — which seems to happen a lot lately! — the conversation inevitably turns to the idea that if enforcers were still around, this wouldn’t happen. But is that true? [Yahoo Sports]

*31 Thoughts, mostly centered on trade rumors, contract rumors, and the horrific story coming out of Chicago. [Sportsnet]

*Gary Bettman met with the media yesterday and during this meeting, said the NHL has the best officials in the world. Okay Gary. Sure Gary. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Gary also made the idea of the NHL going to the Olympics seem like a longshot. Great. Also, we got the first look into the special events happening next season. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, if you’re still on the fence about which team to root for in this Final, don’t you worry. DGB presents arguments for both. [The Athletic]
