Afternoon links: Leopold practices, Scuderi pulls for Pens and more

Rob Scuderi has hernia surgery in his future (ouch) but is pulling for the Penguins to win the Stanley Cup.  Solid human being. [Post-Gazette]

Great news as Jordan Leopold (head) participated in his first full practice today (he had previously skated on his own Monday).  Can never be too careful or assume he'll be able to return soon, but it seems he's progressing on the path to recovery. []

We have a lot of great fanposts popping up, so consider this your personal invitation to create them if you have a point you'd like to make or if we haven't talked about something you think is important.  Like this excellent one of Dan Bylsma.  Also, if you see a great fanpost, be sure to "rec" it in the comments to show your approval!

Stretch if you'll believe it, but Jaromir Jagr's in a complicated situation.  But, for the next 15 minutes at least, it seems like he's most likely to stay in the KHL next season. [Puck Daddy]

Hate to give anything up to a Flyer, but Ian Laperriere sure is a man. [From the Point]

Bob McKenzie's thoughts that hints Alex Ovechkin will be key for the Capitals tonight.  I don't buy that; even though AO's getting a rap for perceived bad pressure play, his playoff numbers are there.  It's the guys like Alex Semin, Brooks Laich, Mike Green and Tomas Fleischmann that the Caps need to get more production from.

For all things Caps/Habs and Wings/Coyotes fallout, check out Seth's much better link dump. [Empty Netters]

Finally, our deep sympathies to the friends/family here.  We'll are Pens fans in a big, internet community and we're all sad. [The Pensblog]
