<li> Dear Bruins, please get David Krejci some help! [<a href="">BostonHerald</a>]</li>

[<a href="">TheBostonGlobe</a>] But the latest news is that the Bruins made three offers in an effort to retain him. [<a href="">TheBostonGlobe</a>]</li>
<li> In hindsight, apparently Dougie Hamilton wanted out. Apologies to you, Don Sweeney. [<a href="">WEEI</a>]</li>

<li> So there's always next year for the Hockey Hall of Fame, here is an assessment of candidates and their cases for induction. [<a href="">Grantland</a>]</li>
<li> This watchlist of 10 players appear to be the cream of the free agent crop. For some, it is let the buyer beware. [<a href="">Grantland</a>]</li>
<li> Compare and contrast to this list of the top ten free agents. [<a href="">Sportsnet</a>]</li>
<li> Nicholas J. Cotsonika bade Yahoo Sports farewell after five years, and posted a retrospective of some of his favorite stories. [<a href="">Cotsonika.Tumblr</a>]</li>
<li> In a very Canadian story, the Rogers Centre roof was closed during a hot June 18th Blue Jays game to facilitate a sucessful attempt to save a family of rare birds. [<a href="">TheGlobeAndMail</a>]</li>
