Line shuffling, some draft pick news and Steve Simmons being an idiot all inside your open thread for Thursday.

Montreal Canadiens News

Thomas Vanek has had a poor showing against the Rangers and may be bumped to fourth line duty according to Wednesday practice lines.

Also of note is that Michel Therrien has confirmed that Dustin Tokarski will get the start in Game 3.

Speaking of Vanek, what is Michel Therrien going to do with him?

Michael McCarron has had a rough season for the London Knights and these quotes don't exactly instill confidence in the 2013 1st round pick.

Steve Dangle Glynn of the Leafs Nation has recapped the last few nights of hockey.

Possibly due to the strong play of Michael Condon in the ECHL, Robert Mayer has been waived by the Canadiens.

Remember that bet between the mayors of Montreal and Boston? Well Boston honoured it...sort of.

Around the NHL

SkinnyFish of PPP has a few choice words for Steve Simmons following another Simmons article bashing statistics.

The Twitterer formerly know as Cam Charron also had some critiques of Simmons article.

Following their awesome Doc Emrick/Daft Punk mashup the fine folks at Deadspin have created a Doc Emrick soundboard for everyone's amusement.

To no one's surprise Barry Trotz may soon have a new coaching gig, this time in Washington.

The Vancouver Canucks finally have their new GM in Jim Benning.

Pierre McGuire for Penguins GM? It's totally possible!

Much like in soccer (or football for you sticklers) there will be a Champions League for hockey now.
