The Penguins stars have final say when they come back from scary injuries, because they're the ones that have to live with it. [Trib - Joe Starkey]

The Sharks make a sick kid's hockey wish come true and oh boy it's getting dusty in here. [Puck Daddy]

Islanders fans were chanting "we want Moulson" last night as they watched Matt Moulson return to the Island for the first time, score a pair of goals in a 6-0 rout. Couldn't have happened to a nicer team. [Puck Daddy]

The agent of Toronto goalie James Reimer has some differences with Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle. Reimer is set to be a restricted free agent after this season, and in the worst case scenario that no Penguins fan wants to think of but it's in the back of all of our minds.....If Marc-Andre Fleury flops again this spring, Reimer could look good as a potential replacement.  [PPP]

The NHL is thinking about how to weigh the odds in the draft lottery. [ESPN]

Speaking of draft lotteries, DGB looked at some famous Patrick's in NHL history and the luck o' the Irish smiled on former Pens GM Craig Patrick in 2005 winning the Sidney Crosby lottery. [Grantland]
