  • Attention Tampa Bay artists! The Lightning want your submissions to their third annual exhibition series of local area artwork! [Tampa Bay Lightning]
  • There was a rumor not long ago about the New York Islanders being sold. Now there's a tangible $10 million lawsuit against Isles owner Charles Wang for backing out of a sale of the team. [New York Daily News]
  • Geoff Moulson, owner of Les Habitants de Montreal, circumvented Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin to get P.K. Subban signed to a long term contract.  [Montreal Gazette]
  • You've likely heard about the Ice Bucket Challenge and seen videos of players participating. Did you know it's objective is to raise funds for ALS research?  Over $1.3 million has been raised so far. [Fox Boston]
  • Oh, and the Bolts have stepped up and accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge [Tampa Bay Lightning]
  • The anti-advanced stats crowd is alive and well and on talk radio in Edmonton, Alberta. [The Copper and Blue]
  • With all the hubbub about analytics and NHL teams hiring stats specialists, perhaps you should introduce yourself to advanced stats? Here's a primer. [Raw Charge]
  • The Florida Panthers have a starting goalie in Roberto Luongo but what they now lack is a goalie of the future. [Litter Box Cats]
  • Torey Krug is an RFA still, the Boston Bruins are over the cap... And the KHL is throwing money at Krug to come over. [Comcast Sports Net NE]
