  • Somehow, the Blues aren't on top of this list. [SI]


  • The best and worst cities for hockey fans in 2015. St. Louis, number three? Okay. (S/T to luvhockey) [Hooked On Hockey Magazine]
  • Why are teams waiting on Cody Franson all of a sudden? That and so much more in Ryan Lambert's weekly What We Learned piece. [Puck Daddy]

  • What is your cat trying to tell you? [Mental Floss]

  • Bugs Bunny turned 75 yesterday. Happy birthday, Bugs! [Nerdist]
  • A massive maple syrup spill in New Hampshire proves that Canada apparently didn't truly have enough maple syrup, I guess. [Y! / AP]
