*Henrik Lundqvist walks past the iconic picture of Mark Messier with the Stanley Cup every single day, and wants a picture of his own.

*My boy Mike Giardi wanted to get some things of his chest, and one of them is hoping that Milan Lucic gets traded this summer after a lackluster playoff result from the Black and Gold.

*The Sedin Twins believe that a Vancouver Canucks renaissance is on the horizon now that they’ve got a summer to work on next season.

*A cool story in USA Today on the “Thank You” letter campaign undertaken by legendary NBC play-by-play man Doc Emrick.

*Andrew Ference is doing the Edmonton Oilers and his home city of Edmonton proud by continuing his open-minded method of leadership that start with trailblazing actions.

*Speaking of NBC sports, Pierre McGuire is among the lead candidates to be the new GM with the Pittsburgh Penguins. I think it would be great for the NHL if McGuire was running a team, and he certainly has the player knowledge and background to swim in those management circles.

*The NHL logos re-imagined as Simpson’s characters. This is pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.

*For something completely different: Thailand is using the three-fingered Hunger Games salute as a form of protest. Life imitating art.
