  • Yo, Cam Neely, the brand of hockey you're nostalgically pursuing is not what is currently winning for other teams. [PuckDaddy]

  • One of these possible GM candidates is a real dark horse, and could give Neely a run for his money by wresting a measure of control. [BruinsDaily]

  • And it would just be folly to try to relive the past... right, Mike Millbury? [HockeyBuzz]

  • Revisit Peter Chiarelli's notable player contract extensions. (Gallery) [MassLive]

  • Johnny Boychuk 's family's move to New York did not go well at first, but his poise and play have been a key to the Islanders ' success. [Newsday] He was clearly feeling it last night, as he shut down Alex Ovechkin in the win, including one acrobatic penalty kill. [CBSSports]

  • The Jets are relishing this playoff ride, and they should. Imagine if Teemu Selanne had not retired, and 49 other observations. [WinnipegFreePress]

  • The Oilers won the lottery, but the big prize is NOT the player they need. [TheHockeyNews] P.S. Don't get cocky, Edmonton, first pick is no golden ticket- as you of all teams should know. [LastWordOnSports]

  • The Stars and the Oilers are looking to move goalies. The Kings are in familiar cap ceiling territory... [TheHockeyNews] ...although Jarret Stoll 's legal issue may push a decision on his future. [TheBostonGlobe]

  • Happy Patriots' Day or Marathon Day! Boston takes sports to heart... [] ...and why it should be a national holiday anyway. []
