Per Jeff Veillette, the top-10 under-24 scorers in the AHL this season:
Two of the top-5, Guentzel and Aberg, have had pretty big roles for their teams in the Cup finals. The other 3 top-5 players are all Leafs. I think that we're all in complete agreement that Griffith won't be getting another shot with the big team but that's pretty promising for Kapanen and Leipsic.

There was one person around here that Carlton was trolling there...only one guy.

Nashville's crowd is fantastic.

Man, if this Pittsburgh PP can't get anything done you wonder how anyone does.

Also, I really think that Crosby looks a lot worse post-concussion than he did before it.

I'm glad that Pittsburgh has decided to hand out breakaways like caramel-infused popcorn at the county fair.

How would you infuse popcorn?

From Music City to hockey tonk.  From fans to celebrities.  Nashville rolled out the red carpet for the Predators and played it l-o-u-d...

Did Crosby purposefully hit the post so it would bank off Rinne's skate and into the net? I'm not sure I can say "no" with 100% certainty.

Nashville might honestly be the best hockey crowd in the NHL. Constantly on their feet and cheering. They seem to know all the rules. They don't stupidly boo any penalty called against them when it's a legit call. They don't pretend there's a rivalry with the other teams best player and boo them anytime they touch the puck. And their chants (goalie chants in particular) might be the best I've ever heard in any sport. Big props to a very underappreciated market.

That draft interview with Don there might have been the most awkward thing I've seen on HNIC.

Eeech!

Wow, Matt Murray's glove is getting exposed big time. Preds going there over and over.

The "book" is out on Murray. This has got to be one of the laziest media-driven narratives ever. And I could make a list of 100s of them.

That's fun. Don't the shooting stats say blocker side has a lower save percentage though?
