NHL Roundup: Your Morning Links


Welcome to your NHL Roundup, where we provide you with your Morning Links from around the NHL.  The action on the ice may be over but there is never an off-season off the ice.

No, Ken Campbell! Bad Ken Campbell! (THN)Nathan Walker tries out for the Caps; makes me think of Crocodile Dundee. THAT’S NOT A KNIFE!  (NHL.com)

Cody Franson on the outs? Can’t afford him when you gotta hand out albatross deals. (TSN)

Turns out that being a really good young defenseman gets you PAID. I see you, Zach Bogosian. I see you. (Yahoo!)

Is it ridiculous that the Blackhawks are selling chunks of the ice from the United Center to capitalize on the Hawks’ Stanley Cup title? A little. Will people buy it? You betcha. (Puck Daddy)

Alex Edler is getting a whole two games for his knee-on-knee hit that took out Eric Staal. (Sporting News)

Down Goes Brown looks at the most perplexing moves of the off-season and — surprise! — the Leafs are there. (Grantland)

The 18 Greatest Buffalo Sabres of All-Time is underway. Where is Dixon Ward? TRAVESTY! (TheFarmClub)
