NYI Fan Central Comments:
Usual excellent work by Mr Fornabaio. We now know when July rookie camp begins as well as a much later start to training camp this year. We also now have a date and a time for a deadline for qualifying to restricted free agents.

Rochester Democrat & Chronicle: Sal Maiorana has an interview with Islanders goaltending coach Mike Dunham about his latest golfing venture.

Note:
Mr Witt & Mr Botta's blog feeds seem to be working again here, both have some excellent features on the upcoming draft.

Star Tribune: Michael Russo's blog on the Wild has the early reaction from Marc-Andre Bergeron on being traded to the Wild among other things which also notes a Blake Wheeler signing cannot be announced until July 1st.
