The NHL Free Agency is here. The last real news generating couple of days before the dog days of summer stretch on and the countdown to next season begins. So make sure to follow those insiders, make sure to follow the credible ones and don’t go around freaking out over a tweet from some random talking about your star player getting shipped out-of-town. Secondly, sit back and enjoy some of the chaos that will ensue from teams trying to get under that new salary cap. Finally, make sure to watch the Philadelphia Flyers there sure to make some questionable decisions and piss off their entire fan base, it seems kind of like tradition at this point.

In Kings news, Keaton Ellerby was extended yesterday. It was reported earlier that he would not be returning, a sign Rob Scuderi could be returning. However, this extension could be the biggest indicator that Scuderi’s time in Los Angeles is nearing an end.
