This sounds like a great neighborhood to live in...

  • Zdeno Chara and two of his neighbors in Trencin, Slovakia have one unusual thing in common... maybe they should rename the street that the trio lives on?  (Google translation from Slovak)  [Hetrik]

  • A Phil Kessel return to the Bruins would make a great storyline, but then sober up with a look at the likely cost.  [HockeyBuzz]

  • Dougie Hamilton will need to be paid, as the Bruins are forced to acknowledge that Peter Chiarelli was financially sound in locking up some players early and long term. [RaysArmy]

  • Of all the things on this list of suggestions for the Bruins' new GM and coach, number one surprised me the most.  [BruinsDaily]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Patrick Kane has grown as both a player and a man. Now he gets "blackout drunk" on much pricier libations. NO, REALLY! [SportsPickle]

  • We can all relate to poor Sean Gentille's situation. Too bad it happened at the Stanley Cup Final.  [SportingNews]

  • The Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins will have a former Bruin coach at the helm this season.  [TSN]

  • Enjoy the action at the Pond Hockey Classic in Meredith, NH. Teams range from former high-school and college players to former NHLers, one team that plies opponents with spiked eggnog, and a team including one UNH scientist concerned about the future of hockey in a warming environment. (Each video is 10 minute-ish)  "Only in New England" [Vimeo] "Battling the Elements" [Vimeo] "Beer League Brothers" [Vimeo] and "A Classic Finish." [Vimeo]

  • Be careful what you post on social media. Was a picture of Jonathan Bernier 's son and a "not-comment" posted by his fiancee' still too much information?  [TheHockeyNews]

  • Media Fail: The Korea Times was justthisclose to getting coverage of the Stanley Cup champions right. D'oh!  [TheHockeyNews]

  • Draftee Mike Reilly summarily spurned the Blue Jackets now that signing time has come, and earned a one sentence goodbye from Ryan Johansen on Twitter.  [SportingNews]

  • And speaking of draft, here are the projected top three NWHL candidates for defensemen.  [TodaysSlapShot]

  • A silver lining for the Coyotes ?  They are amassing a war chest to afford a relocation fee and plan to explore their other options if they lose the lawsuit with Glendale.   [TSN]

  • There are a bunch of former NHLers working on Wall Street, and here is a gallery of the foremost 36 of them. Several are former Bruins.  [BusinessInsider]

  • Have a quick look at unicycle gym hockey.  [Imgur,Reddit]
