Hitting The Links: Overdose Of Marchand Edition

Brad Marchand: still no contract. That won't stop us from linking to a bunch of stories about him, though.Apparently after a rough start, his Cup day was pretty much a resounding success. Good on him.

And, hey guys...It's almost the end of August, which means it's almost September...which means preseason and regular season are just around the corner. It's the calm before the storm. We're almost there. The days are getting shorter and the nights cooler and it's a great feeling.

Just a reminder to check out @Hawgs38's Hurricane Rebuild fundraiser if you haven't already.

After the jump...hey, there was an actual NHL trade yesterday, some fantasy hockey advice, and more...
