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.

Louis Leblanc got cut by the Montreal Canadiens so his girlfriend took to Twitter. Can we have more of this, please? (The Farm Club)

HOCKEY IS HERE (sorta)!!!!! The Los Angeles Kings routed the Anaheim Ducks 6-0 in their preseason game. I know it’s preseason but that just means real hockey is SO CLOSE. (THN)

Tim Thomas got “the itch” from watching the playoffs or “I saw Tuukka do my job without acting like an ass”. (TSN)

ESPN does their ranking of the top 50 defensemen in the NHL. Caveat: ESPN hasn’t paid attention to the NHL since 2001. (ESPN)

I just picture one of the Sedins getting hurt blocking a shot and Torts screaming until his head literally explodes. (Pro Hockey Talk)

The hip check looked like it died with Rob Blake but Dennis Wideman brings it back with style. (NHL)

With Martin Brodeur being named starter, Cory Schneider wonders aloud to everyone “didn’t I just leave this?” (Rich Chere)

And finally, Dustin Byfuglien is happy hockey’s back, too. He even helps an opponent through the door. (Reddit)
