  • We all know about the William Nylander situation in Toronto, but beyond whether or not he's going to sign, how will his deal effect their Cup window? [Sportsnet]
  • The results of the NHL concussion suit aren't a surprise, but they are very disappointing — especially when it comes to lack of support from the supposed brotherhood of players. [Think Progress]
