Fresh Links: Breakup Day Edition

New, comments

Lots of news coming out of breakup day today. Tim Thomas was cheering up his daughter with that sweet gesture after game 7; Patrice Bergeron had a strained oblique muscle; Adam McQuaid is, in fact, concussed; Joe Corvo won't be wearing Black and Gold next season, Tyler Seguin might have a broken hand.

There is a bright spot in all the gloom, though. David Krejci will get to play on; he heads to the World Championships on May 1. Tuukka Rask plans on re-signing with Boston. Dougie Hamilton and Jared Knight are still in contention for the OHL Championship - one will likely move on to contend for the Memorial Cup in Shawinigan, QC in late May. (field trip, anyone?)

After the jump, round 2 is ready to go, and some random other stuff...
