  • Blunt and to the point, here's the bare-bones list of the current roster situation, and the likely future of each player.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Look at the Bruins' present defense from one former opponent's historical view, and you can understand how Jonas Gustavsson might be a bit disappointed in his view from the Bruins' net this season.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Dear Charlie, Cam, and Don- don't shoot yourselves in the feet, here. Would you rather play with Claude Julien or against him?[Hockeybuzz]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Stan Fischler eulogizes the Flyers' visionary founder, Ed Snider.[TheHockeyNews]

  • Got rumors? Malcolm Subban 's brother Parnell Karl and Claude Julien's names just keep coming up. The former has an interesting contract clause kicking in on July 1 of this year.[TheHockeyNews]

  • Ottawa has fired head coach Dave Cameron and two assistant coaches. The plot thickens![TSN]

  • Ride along with longtime Coyote Keith Yandle as he reminisces about taking the ice as a Ranger, and how the team arranged a spectacular welcoming shuttle from the airport to Manhattan.[PlayersTribune]
