 Joe Haggerty's daily spin around the world of hockey . . . and beyond:

-- PHT writer Ryan Dadoun has Anaheim Ducks GM Bob Murray admitting that head coach Bruce Boudreau needs to be better in the playoffs despite his marvelous regular seasons.

-- Joe Starkey with a really thought-provoking piece that gets all over Sidney Crosby, and wonders whether the Pittsburgh Penguins captain is living up to his end of the bargain for the franchise.

-- FOH (Friend of Haggs) Nick Cotsonika says that Mike Babcock will remain with the Detroit Red Wings despite rumors and whispers to the contrary.

-- Elliotte Friedman has his 30 thoughts for the week, including a number of anonymous players telling him that they hate the post-playoff series handshake line.

-- Former NHL ref Kerry Fraser with a pretty impressive takedown of Dave Jackson in his assessment of the officials from Game 7 of the Bruins/Habs series.

-- For something completely different: Eric Wilbur wonders how the hell Bill Parcells isn’t in the Patriots Hall of Fame.
