Kings Links - the SC in AC
The Cup is still in Atlantic City before it heads north to Coburg then to Kitchener.
Sorry about the title, that was me being dumb and trying to be clever. Anyway, Justin Williams brought the trophy to Ventnor Hall and Caesar's today. Tomorrow he gets a parade in his hometown before he hands it off to Tanner Pearson on Sunday. I presume after that it'll go to his teammate in Kenora but that's just speculation and the schedule is kind of all over the place.

Jarome Iginla and 5 other players who will never win a Stanley Cup They're all on largely terrible teams (with one exception) and/or their big, hulking cap hits make it difficult to build around these guys.
Looking for sleeper team? Devils a good bet With an
egotistical aging goalie leaving the team via free agency, the team now has a better option in net and should expect at least a decent performance from the guy they just signed long term. Also, there's no way they're going to repeat last year's shootout luck so that should help.

FINDING SOME COMFORT IN MEDIOCRITY FOR THE TIME BEING OK, so they're not that good right now. But they're not that bad either. And that's not necessarily a negative. They're not really a contender and they have a few stop gaps in place to see how much these kids are ready to take on full time NHL roles and while they continue to further their development.

Sam Bennett should go back to junior The kid has a very, very bright future in the NHL but he's young and undersized and there's no room for him in the lineup. Rather than waste his talents on the fourth line with limited minutes and burn a year off his ELC, it's probably better for him to go back to playing with kids and keep developing.
