from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

- Who saw this coming: A Hart Trophy race between Connor McDavid and defenceman Brent Burns? And there’s no sure-thing pick yet.

- If I’m George McPhee in Las Vegas, one of my goalies next season would be Antti Ranta. A million-dollar contract. A save percentage of .919 and .920 the last two seasons in New York.

- John Tortorella has to be the coach of the year in the NHL, followed closely by Guy Boucher in Ottawa and Bruce Boudreau in Minnesota.

- A hockey birdie whispers that Valtteri Filppula turned down a trade to Toronto, and accepted one to Philadelphia, because he didn’t want to play for Mike Babcock again. Six years of the relentless Babcock is apparently too much for some players.
