*Pierre Lebrun has some rumblings from this week’s GM meetings, including the dashing of dreams for any delusional hockey fans hoping that the Nashville Predators will trade Shea Weber.

*Bruce Arthur pens a mighty column about Henrik Lundqvist denying the Los Angeles Kings a chance at a sweep in the Stanley Cup Final.

*PHT writer and FOH (Friend of Haggs) Jason Brough says that the GMs apparently have squashed the coach’s challenge for next season, but it remains in the plans for the future.

*Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik is eyeing land around the St. Pete Forum with perhaps a plan to build a baseball park adjacent to the hockey arena.

*Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi is experiencing a very rough Stanley Cup Final, and that continued in Game 4 when his broken stick led to a Dustin Brown goal.

*Joe Starkey takes a sobering look at the five-year deterioration of the Pittsburgh Penguins organization.

*Congrats to the Bruins and their partners for winning an Emmy for the first season of Behind the B, an entertaining show that the organization put plenty of blood, sweat and tears into over the last season.

*For something completely different: Dave Chappelle sat down with David Letterman, and discussed leaving the Chappelle Show in a pretty entertaining conversation.
