Monday Links - If You Ain't Dutch, You Ain't Much

The Draft. Trades. Buyouts. Awkward draft photos. Trade requests. HUP HOLLAND HUP (which Elliott agrees with)! Los Ticos. Two historic rival matchups. Buy a town with a bar. Sad news. Dear Kitten. And . . . touching cloth? Your Monday links await.

LET THIS YOUNG RUSSIAN MAN STARE INTO YOUR FUCKING SOUL.

My links partner thinks I might have a system. Haha.

BLUES NEWS:

  • How'd the Blues do in the draft? Hoosier Blue asks the question . . . [SLGT FanPosts]
  • . . . and, at least for the moment, Brian gives us the answers, along with the scouting reports on EVERY draft pick the Blues had in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, all here in this StoryStream. [SLGT]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • Biggest news of yesterday . . . probably this. First, Oilers center Sam Gagner gets swapped to the Lightning(s) for Newfie winger Teddy Purcell, then Gagner was traded with our old pal B.J. Crombeen to the Coyotes for a sixth-rounder in 2015. Basically, a salary dump. O . . . kay then. [Puck Daddy]
  • Next . . . may have been that the Sabres bought out Christian Ehrhoff. I think a few folks might've seen this coming. Oh, and Army . . . no. (But I think you know that.) [The Score]
  • Look at some awkward photos of NHL draft picks. A top 10 of them, actually. [Puck Daddy]
  • It's been rumored that the Maple Leafs have been shopping James Reimer, and now apparently Reimer has requested that the Leafs actually, y'know, just send him elsewhere. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]

2014 FIFA MEXICAN TEAR-CHUGGING CONTEST WORLD CUP:

OTHER SHIT:

  • If you have $400K burning a hole in your pocket, you can buy a small town in South Dakota. Bar included! [Y! / AP]
  • Heart-wrenching news out of rural Georgia. A 23-year-old former Auburn University football player died in an auto accident Sunday morning. 23. Yeah, that . . . just sucks, man. [Deadspin]

VIDEO:

Here's an adorable cat thing. (S/T to Kate):

Of course that's a BuzzFeed thing, right?

And then there's this from That Mitchell & Webb Look's first season. It's just right for Game Time:

Yes. It is right for Game Time.

So yeah, I don't have a system, but I am quite consistent with my postings, I suppose. If you have something for me in the way of links, videos or whatever, please let me know:
