That’s what I think of you, Monday! No offense, of course, but you are by far the worst day of the week. You ruin weekends, and send me to my job tired and cranky. Thanks for nothing.
Now that THAT is out of the way, here are your daily links!!!
The Chicago Blackhawks and the Los Angeles Kings played game 2 of the Western Conference finals last night, and maybe it was the quick turnaround from game 1, or some bad sushi that the Kings ate Saturday evening, but man, did the Kings get whomped. Bleacher Report gives you the full run-down of the butt-kicking Chicago put on LA.
Is the same Chicago Blackhawks team that nearly self-destructed its way to a series loss against Detroit currently thrashing the defending Stanley Cup champions? Hard to believe, but yes, this is the same team. Adrian Dater takes a closer look at how the tide has turned for Chicago.
At Sabre Noise, a lot of us have focused on the question, “Who will be the starting goaltender for the Buffalo Sabres next year?” Well, how about Mike Smith? I know it’s a bit of a dream, but this piece from the Toronto Sun explains why getting Mike Smith might not be as difficult as you think.
Lots of rumors are starting to swirl as the 2013 NHL Draft approaches, with Hockey Buzz reporting on a few teams who are looking to move up in order to pick . . . (it might not be who you think!).
Now that the combine is over, Bleacher Beport has produced a new mock draft. When it comes to the Buffalo Sabres, I like these picks better than the ones they had in the mock draft I shared with you yesterday.
Finally, I send you over to Die By The Blade, where today’s interesting reads include report card grades for Steve Ott and Tyler Myers, and some links that deal with local prospects. Enjoy!
