Tuesday night link dump and open thread

There has yet to be a formal announcement of a NHL Draft night party by the team for Tampa Bay Lightning faithful. We would have expected something like this to come up sometime during the past week... And yet there has been nothing and it appears that there will be nothing.

Raw Charge will have a draft night open thread, and there has been Twitter talk of a fan get-together at Hattricks on draft night.  We'll certainly have any official draft-party news should it become available from the team...  But we'll also give out more info on this unofficial watch party if and when we find out more.

The NHL awards precede the NHL draff, however, and that's part of iour link-dump coverage.
