The Stanley Cup final begins tonight. There can be only one winner. But so many things to read:

Vaguely Islanders- or General Hockey-Related
  • Sons of Pierre Turgeon and Al MacInnis at the draft combine. I feel old. [THN]
  • Reviewing Mark Streit's first season in Philly. [BSH]
  • Swedes pick the Cup final and Tommy Salo is dead to me. [Some place in Sweden]
  • Draft following: This site always keeps good track of various mock drafts. [DC Pro Sports]
  • No way this McGuire-for-Pens-GM stuff is for real, right? RIGHT? Also: Pittsburgh's chief columnist/troll fields questions about McGuire. [Tribune]
  • It's okay though. He has Ray's blessing! [Puck Daddy]
  • What's more strange -- Dater doing a straightforward profile of the guys behind analytics hockey stats sites, or finishing it with a tiny and random paragraph about the Avs not being into it? [Denver Post]
  • The 2015 WJC in Montreal schedule is out. [HEOTP]
