Your Friendly Thursday Links Roundup: The Detroit Has Fallen Edition

New, comments

Last night, Chicago did what we failed to do: beat Detroit. And Paul Kariya talks about Patrick Roy.

Jeff Gross

Fun Fact: I made this observation during the podcast that Chris and I recorded over the weekend, [Ed. Note: Sorry for the delay will post it tomorrow. -CK] but I'll make it again: the four remaining playoff teams - Pittsburgh, Chicago, Boston, and LA - are also the last four Stanley Cup champions. Expect to hear the Cup winner referred to as a "dynasty" throughout the offseason.

  • Paul Kariya discusses the Patrick Roy hiring in Colorado. [Denver Post]
  • After a blown call in regulation, defenseman Brent Seabrook's overtime heroics sent the Chicago Blackhawks to the Western Conference Final. Woohoo! [Backhand Shelf]
  • Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray discusses his offseason plans more extensively, including his willingness to package some of the Sens' young prospects for a scoring winger. [Ottawa Sun]
  • The New York Rangers fired coach John Tortorella yesterday. Won't you miss his classy verbal sparring with Larry Brooks? [NHL.com]
  • The Ducks website has written a profile of Andrew Cogliano. [Anaheim Ducks]
  • The Sharks have signed former first-round pick Tomas Hertl to an entry-level deal. [Fear The Fin]
  • Winging It In Motown recaps the Wings' Game 7 loss/the end of their sason. Full disclosure: most of my knowledge of this series has been gleaned from recaps. However, it seems as though the Wings made the same mistake against Chicago that we made against them in the quarterfinals - failing to finish your opponent off when you have them against the ropes. Regardless, it was an admirable run from a team that didn't get in to the playoffs until the last weekend of the regular season. [Ed.
