BLUES NEWS:

  • Robb looks at what went wrong with Blues player usage in the playoffs. Steve Ott is involved. I know. Shocking. [SLGT]
  • Ryan Lambert nailed most of his latest Trending Topics piece about the Blues . . . except for the part where Dmitrij Jaskin becomes a top-six forward, more than likely. Hildy elaborates. [SLGT]
  • Vladimir Tarasenko out-tweeted the living fuck out of George Lopez. Also, did you know that VT is now a defenseman? [SLGT]
  • HullandOates85 gives his ideas for lines and defensive pairings for next season. He leaves out Steve Ott, which I would find absolutely fucking fantastic, but remember that Ken Hitchcock is the coach. [SLGT]
  • Our Prospects Department was on the scene for Prospect Camp, and files this report on what he saw. Great work as always by B-Dub. [SLGT]

HOCKEY NEWS:

  • The Rangers and Derek Stepan are still dicking around with a RFA deal. Can it happen? [Puck Daddy]
  • Hey, remember that time Chris Stewart cost $4.15MM/year against the Blues' cap? Well, he's only counting $1.7MM against the Ducks' cap next year. Good fucking Christ. [Ducks]
  • The Blackhawks sent Patrick Sharp to the Stars along with something called Stephen Johns in exchange for Trevor Daley and Ryan Garbutt. Yeah, sure, Stan, deal him within the division, asshole. [Stars]
  • Jack Eichel is really turning heads this summer. Here he is, literally ripping one THROUGH a net. [CBS Sports Eye on Hockey]
  • The Predators traded forward Taylor Beck to the Maple Leafs for Jamie Devane, which seems like a massive win for the Leafs, actually. [USA Today]
  • The Hurricanes signed their first-round pick, defenseman Noah Hanifin, to an entry-level deal. [Hurricanes]
  • Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty will likely miss the beginning of the season due to a knee injury suffered at a non-hockey event. [Sportsnet]

  • Marshawn Lynch is one good-ass kickball player. [Deadspin]

VIDEO:

A coworker turned me on to a YouTube channel called "Postmodern Jukebox". In it, this gem . . . a version of the song "Pompeii" by Bastille, done in a late 60's Mad Men-type style:

Killer. You'll see more of this channel in upcoming links posts, I guaran-Goddamn-tee.

Send me links, videos and other shit for Wednesday:

No podcast this week, by the way.
