The end of the season is nigh!

At long last, we've come to the end of the 2008-9 NHL season this evening, with Game Seven of the Stanley Cup Final. If you can't find enough info about the game tonight perhaps you need Internet 101, so instead of rehashing the keys to victory let's take a look at some other fun stuff, including two Preds on a tour bus, one prospect for the Olympics and an assessment on how a team in Hamilton might affect NHL revenue sharing...

Free Agent Centers & the Devils: Steve Sullivan - In Lou We Trust

SB Nation's New Jersey Devils blog casts a covetous eye at Steve Sullivan. Oddly enough, he looks at Sully as a center for the Devils, which I just can't see at this point, as he's played wing for quite a while lately, and can better focus on his offensive game playing the wing.

Jim Diamond catches up with ex-NHL defenseman Uwe Krupp, who is in town for a hockey clinic, to discuss the Olympic prospects of Alexander Sulzer with the German squad. While Ryan Suter is expected to play for Team USA and Shea Weber has a shot with Team Canada, Sulzer will also likely be in Vancouver this winter, as should Pekka Rinne for Finland and Martin Erat for the Czech Republic.

Alexander Ovechkin: Your lovely NHL 2K10 cover model - Puck Daddy

The NHL's leading goal scorer is now the cover guy for next year's installment of the NHL 2K series.

The Draft Board: Jared Cowen - Pension Plan Puppets

SB Nation's Toronto Maple Leafs blog is putting together a mock draft board. Head on over and read up on Jared Cowen, a top-flight defensive prospect who is coming off major knee surgery.

How would a Hamilton team affect the salary cap? - From The Rink

There's been an awful lot of speculation when it comes to a potential Coyotes-to-Hamilton relocation, and one of the things we've heard talked about is the fact the salary cap would, as a result of moving the lowest revenue team into Southern Ontario, jump considerably.
