*Theoretically, the Flyers should be better on faceoffs next season. (Flyers Faithful)

*The Minnesota Wild lost thirty million dollars last season. Yikes. (Puck Daddy)

*Stat School: PDO. (HEotP)

*Cam Charron on anchoring bias or why fans often hate their team's best player. (Backhand Shelf)

*The signatures on the referendum that would have halted the sale of the Coyotes have been invalidated due to technicality. Sale is reported to be imminent. (Five for Howling)

*Vegas oddsmakers have the Blackhawks as the favorites to win the Cup in 2014. Flyers are currently 28-1. Ouch. (Sports Illustrated)

*Zach Bogosian has signed a long-term extension with the Jets; cap hit of a little more than $5 million per year. (Arctic Ice Hockey)

*So what's the deal with all these big-term contracts? (Puck Daddy)
