NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins-Championshp Parade Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Hey it’s almost September...

Ian Cole discusses the recent Game of Thrones season finale, if that’s your thing. []

Minnesota fans are feeling really down on the trade this summer with Buffalo. [Hockey Wilderness]

For the FWIW file, Chicago reportedly didn’t even make contact with Will Butcher’s camp. You would think a potentially free prospect is a good prospect, but a reminder that different organizations can evaluate players differently, or sometimes just be content with their current depth options.. [Second City Hockey]

Speaking of Butcher, sounds like former WB/S and current Devils coach John Hynes really helped sell the young defenseman on why NJ was the best place for him. [Puck Daddy]

Unsurprising news: new arena in Detroit = higher ticket prices. [Winging it in Motown]

Former Penguins prospect Kasperi Kapanen is knocking on the NHL door and the 5th best player in Toronto under 25. [PPP]

Eric Tangradi flopped in Pittsburgh but the now 28-year old veteran has found success in the AHL. [Post-Gazette]

Congrats to Eric Lindros for getting his number retired in Philly. []

The Bruins often have trouble signing great young restricted free agents. Looks like David Pastranak is adding his name to that list. [CSN NE]
