*So we’re technically we are one win away from the Stanley Cup Final. Or two, depending on how Game 6 goes. Maths! Anyhoo, we got a little update? insight? on the coaching search yesterday and it was... interesting. [BSH]

*One of the names that came out of that update is a guy that uh... well, he sure knows how to coach a bad hockey team, that’s for sure. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charlie’s player reviews continue, with much-loved but often-disappointing Oskar Lindblom. [The Athletic]

*At 16 on the Community Draft Board, just the third defenseman thus far. Which is wild. [BSH]

*Speaking of the draft, this Cutter Gauthier kid’s name keeps coming up around the 5th overall pick, so I dunno maybe get ready for that. [Inquirer]

*Back to the coaching thing, Bruce Cassidy doesn’t seem to keen on waiting long for his next gig so.... Chuck? [ProHockeyTalk]

*Looking toward the Final, Colorado is lucky to have a bit of time off between it and their series with the Oilers because injuries might be a bit of a problem for them. [Mile High Hockey]

*The Flyers have functionally zero cap space heading into free agent season but if Chuck is able to make some moves, there are quite a lot of good players coming available July 1. [The Athletic]

*And finally, new BSH Radio for your weekend! Happy Friday, everybody. [BSH]
