Vasy cometh... because he can't stand the KHL

Interesting quote from Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy. There are many big names at the moment (read: Pavel Datsyuk) who contrast this form of opinion... At least for the moment.

The best 'where were you when Stamkos re-signed' story

Recently, we posed the question: Where were you when Steven Stamkos re-signed with the Lightning? From being in Sweden (!!!) to being glued to the NHL Network (same) to being at work (ugh, #work), we'll remember where we were on the afternoon of June 29. Among all the answers, one stood out from the rest. And it's from the Lightning's own vice president of marketing! Here's the full set of tweets from above.

Johnson, Killorn and all the cliches in "NHL Interview 101"

Good effort. Played hard. Get pucks in deep. You've heard your favorite players speak in circles and cliches, but not quite like this. Sportsnet's cliche compilation video features Tyler Johnson, Alex Killorn, Guy Boucher, John Tortorella and more saying all the same things, and it's amusing to see it all together. It is what it is!

The AHL's Board of Governors has concluded their Annual Meeting

theahl.com

Among the highlights: There are no changes to the North Division, where the Syracuse Crunch currently resides. Also, some teams will continue to play less games. However, the crossover rule has been eliminated. The governors also have enacted new jersey rules for home and away colors. In addition, there are new "staged fighting" rules, a new icing rule, and the elimination of the "dry scrape" of the ice prior to OT.

Yzerman: "He wants to win"

In a way, this actually creates a question of how things have progressed to this point in time-- the delay in Stamkos re-signing, I mean. The direction of the Tampa Bay Lightning seems to be a correct one for the want to win.

Jonathan Drouin press conference in Syracuse

A day after Jonathan Drouin's suspension was lifted by the Tampa Bay Lightning organization, Drouin returned to the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL to participate in team activities. He spoke with media as well. Some remarks can be seen as Drouin trying to correct a conduct wrong, it can also be read plainly as Drouin trying to right his value after hurting himself on the trade market. Whatever the case, it's his reintroduction at Syracuse. Now what?

Bob McKenzie's take on the leading candidate to land Jonathan Drouin

There's missing context here of where this was said, but it should not be a surprise that McKenzie is in the dark with Drouin suitors and what GM Steve Yzerman favors.

I do recommend following Today's Slapshot's Chris Nichols on Twitter. While he pulls quotes off radio and from elsewhere form prominent media names, it isn't always clear where they were speaking at the time.

Of course there are two teams at play tonight in the Onondaga War Memorial Arena in Syracuse, but with how things have progressed in the last six days, you can get an inkling that this corps might be examining Jonathan Drouin more than who is on the Hershey Bears (Washington Capitals AHL affiliate).
