Monday Morning Fly By: The Final pieces

Mandatory Credit: Brett Holmes-USA TODAY Sports

*Big weekend for our old friend Bob as the Florida Panthers have moved on to the Stanley Cup Final for the second year in a row. Real shame about the Rangers. [Sportsnet]

*Post elimination we heard about some comments from Peter Laviolette, and it elicited a response summed up here by Kurt so perfectly, so eloquently, that it warrants posting here:

*After last night’s Game 6 win, it’ll be the Edmonton Oilers meeting up with the Cats in this year’s Final. [Sportsnet]

*Since the NHL is nothing if not a league filled with and run by unoriginal copycats, it’s time to start asking how you, too, can build yourself a team as good as the Florida Panthers. [ESPN]

*Speaking of not having an original idea, if a team from Florida/Nevada/Tennessee is successful you know what that means, friends! We’re talking about taxes. [The Hockey News]

*Anyhoo, the Flyers. Danny Briere is talking about 6th round pick Hunter McDonald again. Remarkable how hard they’re pushing this kid. [Inquirer]

*Keeping with the draft pick theme, next up on the Community Board is a kid that’s been getting a whole lot of play with The Experts lately. [BSH]

*Unfortunately, our boys Bonk and Barkey will not be bringing the Memorial Cup to London. [ESPN]

*First instinct, as a fan, is to say that this is not the year the Flyers need to be targeting any Big Name free agents. But is it possible one or two of them might make sense? [The Athletic]

*If you’re a subscriber over at Charlie’s website, he’s got a great piece breaking down the Flyers’ cap situation that’s worth a read. [PHLY]

*And finally, in case you missed it, a new episode of the BSH Podcast dropped over the weekend! We’d love for you to enjoy. [BSH]
