Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading while officially in the final countdown for NHL hockey. 


*Interesting story about Ryan Spooner spending part of his offseason improving his ability to work the turntables as a DJ. He certainly has the hand/eye coordination for it. 


*Brian Boyle is progressing in his cancer treatment, but likely won’t be ready for the start of the season according to Pro Hockey Talk. As always, our prayers are with Boyle and his family for the speedy recovery that seems to be happening. 


*(FOH) Friend of Haggs Frank Seravalli has some bold predictions for the upcoming NHL season. In fact he has 31 bold predictions with one for each of the NHL teams. 


*Marty Lapointe goes through the top-10 prospects in the Montreal Canadiens organization, and where they are at in terms of their development. 


*Patrik Laine isn’t going to rest on his laurels after a strong season with the Winnipeg Jets, and is instead looking for more ways to improve. 


*Since we all love a good list, here are seven things to watch as the NHL gets underway to start the season.
