Browsing The Barilkosphere – July 31st Links

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

I’m a little bit behind in my hockey blog reading, so most of the following links are a couple days old. Nonetheless, there’s plenty of interesting stuff going on in the hockey world, even if we’re now firmly entrenched in the “Dog Days”. I’ll hope to get back to a semi-regular schedule with the BTBs in the coming days, but in the meantime, enjoy today’s round of links:

If the Toronto Maple Leafs deal Cody Franson, how interested should the Edmonton Oilers be?

The cap crunch could force the Leafs’ hand on this one, which is a shame, because Franson is needed badly. From Jonathan Willis of the Edmonton Journal.

Would Cody Franson Be A Good Fit With The Montreal Canadiens?

He’d be a good fit anywhere, probably. Depends on the asking price, obviously. From Kenny MacMillan of A Winning Habit.

Chutes And Ladders: Toronto Maple Leafs

I can’t see Dave Bolland playing much in the top-six, but hopefully he can help anchor a shut-down third line. From Jared Crozier of SenShot.

Paul Ranger: A Lesson In Life

It’s easy to forget Ranger was a top-pairing guy in Tampa four years ago. From Tom McQueen of Bolts By The Bay.

Anchoring bias, or ‘why do fans seem to hate on their teams best players?’

But…but…but KESSEL DOESN’T BACKCHECK!!!1 From Cam Charron of Backhand Shelf.

Minnesota lost $30 million last season; lockout or Parise, Suter to blame? (Report)

If the Wild lost that much, how much did a team like Florida lose last season? From Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy.

NHL still feeling financial impact of lockout?

They could feel the pinch even more when the Canadian broadcast rights agreement expires after this season. From theScore.com.

Broke: Detroit’s Bankruptcy And Its New Arena Complex

A good, reasoned outlook on what a new revitalized downtown core will mean for cash-strapped Detroit. From David Malinowski of Winging It In Motown.
