Habs Links:

Per Renaud Lavoie several players are not returning to the Habs including George Parros, Douglas Murray and Thomas Vanek.

By now everyone is familiar with Dustin Tokarski's story but his hometown paper offers another in depth look at the young netminders career.

While not every fan will agree it is clear that Marc Bergevin and the Canadiens want to re-sign current captain Brian Gionta.

Dale Weise was the victim of a brutal blind side hit in the playoffs and suffered a concussion, as he returned to training Weise defended concussion protocols.

Around the NHL:

The Rangers managed to avoid elimination with a 2-1 win over the Kings...with a little help from the ice.

The AHL announced today that there will be a game inside the Carrier Dome between the Syracuse Crunch and the Utica Comets next season.

Team Canada's Charline Labonte came out publicly and shared her story including her time in Sochi at the 2014 Olympics.

So the LA Kings forgot to add a name to their Stanley Cup T-shirts...poor Justin Williams.

According to Pierre LeBrun changes to the draft lottery could be coming soon.

Speaking of changes the NHL may be implementing a coaches challenge in an upcoming season.

Another off-season begins and Predators GM David Poile once again says Shea Weber is not available.
