Grab your pichforks and shovels... no, not for that- to help the Bruins with offseason chores!

  • The Bruins will have plenty of time to attack this "honey-do" list over the summer.[]

  • In recent news, the Bruins landed the #14 draft pick, and doff your hats to gentlemanly Loui Eriksson , who now has twice been nominated for a genteel NHL award.[PatriotLedger]

  • The NHL is not signalling an eagerness to shut down for three weeks to allow players time for Olympic participation. Doug Houda spoke about a trio of Bruins defensemen, including an admission that he has read the sour media opinions of Kevan Miller. Houda disagrees.[BostonHerald]

  • The first-round Calder Cup playoffs were an eye-opener for Austin Czarnik , who got a chance to face bigger, older players like the ones he hopes to face in the NHL.[TheBostonGlobe]

  • Team Pooh FOREVER! Former Bruin Shane Hnidy , now a color analyst for the Jets, talks about his favorite uniform, and how Pierre McGuire was helpful to him.[TheHockeyNews]

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • Hooray for the Sharks, who have located the errant black kitty that ran across the ice Friday evening and are spearheading the effort to either find its owner or a new home. (With video)[Sharks.NHL]

  • TAXI! Former Bruin Justin Florek has been called up as an Islanders Black Ace.[LighthouseHockey]

  • Former Bruin David Warsofsky overcame an accidental slip on a Peel and subsequent trade to find himself invited to play at the World Championships.[WorcesterTelegram&Gazette]

  • In the background of the famous photo of P.K. Subban and Steven Stamkos as 10-year-olds, a third young player was lost to history... until now.[TheStar]

  • Hey, tax law nerds! One tax law ruling in Massachusetts hinged on an argument that the Commonwealth was only due tax revenue from a hockey team's home games rather than from the entirety of a team's income for the season (based on the franchise being headquartered in Boston.)[BloombergBNA]

  • Godspeed former NHL referee Ron Wicks, who had seen and heard it all. He named Bobby Orr as the best player he'd ever seen, and he was the youngest ever official when he was called to referee his first game in 1960.[TheGlobeAndMail]

  • Montreal typical. Accuse the NHL of draft fixing- then, with the next breath, explain why it hisorically has not mattered anyway.[MontrealGazette]
