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.

My initial response to Miikka Kiprusoff’s announcement of his retirement was “didn’t this happen months ago?” (THN)

The Flyers don’t care about no salary cap as they sign Danny Cleary to a three-year deal. (Pro Hockey Talk)

A look into the goals for vs goals against numbers for the Avs asks the question “is the defense still so sucky the ratio of for:against won’t change?” (Mile High Hockey)

John Tavares has been named the captain of the Islanders to the surprise of no one. (Islanders Point Blank)

Chicago GM Stan Bowman said Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews “will be here forever” as lightning crackled behind him. (NBC Chicago)

I know Matt Harvey already did this but it doesn’t make it any less awesome. (Senators)

Henrik Lundqvist’s new mask is cool but I bet a lot of people would still rather see him without it. (Twitter)

The Hunchback of Notre Dame Evgeni Malkin delivers some tickets to lucky fans. (NHL)

And lastly, this would be funnier if I didn’t think somewhere, Blaine Lacher was doing just this as his job. (Reddit)
