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.

The NHL already has its first scary incident of the season with Rusty Klesla being stretchered off the ice after a nasty, probably illegal hit. (Puck Daddy)

Contract talks are still ongoing with the Leafs and RFA Cody Franson; could he be the odd man out? (TSN)

Like anything else ever, the Cody Hodgson deal has some folks happy and some…less than enthused. (The Hockey Writers)

Remember how Dan Cleary signed with the Flyers? Yeah, well, he’s back with the Wings for one more year. (The Farm Club)

Who doesn’t love Batman? COMMIES, THAT’S WHO. (SI)

Jason Spezza and Steve Yzerman are on similar career paths, which was stunning to hear  until I actually read this. (SenShot)

So I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that this high stick Ovechkin took to the face wasn’t an embellishment. (Russian Machine Never Breaks)

Speaking of Ovechkin, I have to agree with his cry of “we individuals…It’s stupid” in regards to the NHL’s new rules regarding tucking in your jersey. (Washington Post)

And finally, the best of Reddit Hockey for last week and I would absolutely watch that show starting Bryzgalov, Thomas, and a whiskey drinking/chain smoking DiPietro. (Reddit)
