*We learned late last week that Jake Voracek has been informed that he’s on the way out. Interesting. [BSH]

*There was also a bit of an update on the Seth Jones sitch. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And when we say “late last week” we mean LATE, since Friedman dropped 31 Thoughts in the middle of the night for some reason. [Sportsnet]

*Last week Charlie rolled through a list of UFAs that he thinks are worth pursuing. Now, all of the ones Chuck should absolutely not sign under any circumstances. [The Athletic]

*Next up on the draft board is another kid from Halifax, which rules. [BSH]

*Anyway, it promises to be a wild couple of weeks heading into expansion. [The Canadian Press]

*Haven’t heard much about the Coyotes but evidently they’ve got some guys worth looking into if you’re Chuck Fletcher. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Over the weekend Nikita Kucherov continued his heel turn, which continues to be fun. [ProHockeyTalk]

*The Montreal Canadiens are just the latest in a long line of Cinderella Stories that ended poorly in the Cup Final. DGB runs through them all. [The Athletic]

*And finally, the ESPYs were held over the weekend. Surely everyone knew that and tuned in. And in their newly-created “Best NHL Hockey Player” category, ESPN gave the award to... Patrick Kane. So now we know that no one at ESPN has watched NHL hockey in at least a decade. Fun! [NBC Sports Chicago]
