Fresh Links: Live From New York It's Jeremy Jacobs Edition

Sweet beads, Mr. Jacobs.

So talks are continuing at the NHL offices regarding the NHL labor situation, and who's there from the Bruins? Our very own owner, Jeremy Jacobs. The other two owners present are Ted Leonsis of the Capitals and Craig Leipold of the Wild. Interesting. Leonsis has been known as a very progressive owner, and while Jacobs was trashed years ago for being thrifty, the Bruins have become a spending-to-the-cap team in the past few years. It's probably a really good thing to have these two involved.

Today is August 1st. Every new month means we're a little bit closer to the offseason being OVER. Thank god. Today marks 71 days until the planned opening night of the season; so, Marc Savard's old jersey number days to go! (or Jiri Sleger days. But who likes Jiri Sleger anyways.)

After the jump, Shane Doan is seeing other people, a hockey fan's guide to the Summer Olympics, and some labor talk details...
