*It’s July 1, and in a normal world we’d be kicking off Silly Season. The most wonderful time of the year. But this weirdo year, we wait. Alas. Anyhoo, did you catch the NHL Awards? In case you missed it, here’s a full rundown of this year’s winners. [The Hockey News]

*Rumors, they abound. Some from reliable sources, some from random corners of the internet. Anyway, the Flyers really can’t include Joel Farabee in any kind of trade. [BSH]

*Speaking of rumors, LeBrun has a few. Including, perhaps, an actual offer sheet?! [The Athletic]

*We’re through two games in this Final and, despite fans in the stands, if Montreal pulls off this upset, the city probably won’t be able to give the occasion the celebration it deserves. [The Canadian Press]

*A speedy forward is up next on the Community Draft Board. [BSH]

*Jonathan Toews had a rough year, and now that he’s back skating, he’s ready to talk about it. [ProHockeyTalk]

*We shared the full ESPN hockey lineup yesterday; there are a few Flyers connections. Sometimes that’s fun. [Inquirer]

*Did you know Mark Cuban almost bought the Penguins?? The person composing these blurbs did not know that. [Pensburgh]

*And finally, in a season where nearly nothing made sense, a team that ended the year in 18th place is currently competing for the Cup. Is there something to be learned here? [The Athletic]
