Hey all, Muse here. Anyone have big plans for the long weekend? Where the hell did this summer go? A lot of people treat Memorial Day weekend like it's the unofficial start of summer, and with all the back-to-school sales and the Pumpkin Spice things arriving in coffee houses and store shelves, I'd say Labor Day would be like the unofficial end of summer/start of fall. (And I know one of you is just itching to say "Well, technically fall starts at this end of the month..." and to that I say: "Sh.")

Okaaaaaaaay....on to the links now in Pumpkin Spice flavor! (Because everything else is this time of year.)

Bruins News...

  • We already know who the top two defensive pairings will be, but who will round out the roster on defense? NESN's Billy Jaffe and Andy Brickley weigh in on the various options the Bruins will have this year. [NESN]
  • Chris Kelly spoke to DJ Bean about the trade rumors swirling around him earlier and provided him with an amusing anecdote about former Bruin Carl Soderberg. [WEEI.com]
  • At the start of the Bruins' off-season, right around the time of the NHL Awards, Bruins Daily threw together a list of the Five Must See Bruins Games for the 2015-16 season. Then Don Sweeney had to go and ruin everything for them by blowing up the roster later on. So, in honor of that, and in honor of the slow hockey news summer not only is Bruins Daily creating another list of Five Must See Bruins Games for the 2015-16 season, but I'm including it here in the links. By the way, I'm not sure what's going on with the "prettyPhoto" hashtag in the web address. [Bruins Daily]

Around the NHL...

  • Slava Voynov may have finished serving his sentence in jail, but now he has been taken into custody by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, where he will stay until he has a hearing with an immigration judge. [TSN]
  • Andrei Vasilevskiy, the Lightning's 21-year-old back-up goalie, will be out two to three months following surgery to remove a blood clot from his left collarbone. [Tampa Bay Times]
  • With a new coach, the Edmonton Oilers may end up with a new captain, and Andrew Ference seems pretty Zen about that possibility. [The Score]
  • I was very excited to hear about this. As his sister has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Jakub Voracek has pledged to donate $1,000 toward MS research for every point he tallies this year. Medicines developed through research have improved the quality of life for those living with MS in leaps and bounds over the years, and with three people in my family having been diagnosed with the disease throughout the course of my life, I've seen what happens when there is no medicine to control it, and what happens when there's the ability to detect it early and provide treatment for it. So best of luck to him, except when he's playing against the Bruins. [Fox Sports]
  • And for those of you getting ready to play Fantasy League Hockey later this year, here's a list of the Ten Most Overvalued Fantasy League Players for this year. [The Hockey News]
