*So now that Chuck is done (ostensibly), we’ve got the long hot August between us and players on the ice. Sigh. Anyhoo, Charlie looks at the last two moves Chuck made this week: Martin Jones and Nate Thompson. [The Athletic]

*If there’s one thing we can take from Chuck’s offseason it’s that he is ready for this team to win now. This isn’t a man building for the future. [NBC Sports Philly]

*But there were some risks taken. Last summer, Chuck bet that his players would repeat their performance from the end of the regular season. He lost that bet. This year, he’s better that a couple of his new players will improve. We’ll see how it goes. [BSH]

*We spoke with Alex from The Cannon to get a little inside information about Cam Atkinson. [BSH]

*Our pal Michael Raffl has found a new home down south. [Defending Big D]

*It seemed like a Vladimir Tarasenko trade was imminent. And it still hasn’t happened. What’s up with that? [ProHockeyTalk]

*If you were worried about Ron Hextall going to the Penguins and making them into a winner again... well, he’s doing Ron Hextall things over there. We’re fine. [Pensburgh]

*And finally, just in time for your ride to the shore today, Steph had a chat with Chuck Fletcher yesterday and we learned some good stuff. Really really good stuff. [BSH]
