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.

The Blues and Jay Bouwmeester came to terms on a new deal with the Blues smartly getting him for less per year than he was previously making.

Ever wondered how much each point cost per player? A look at what it cost for the Sabres last year. (Die By The Blade)

Should the Panthers make a push for Tim Thomas? Would he sign there? (Litter Box Cats)

You can almost feel the hurt when talking about Alfredsson’s departure. (Silver Seven Sens)
