The free agent frenzy has shifted back to July 1st and all of Canada will be BBQing and following along to see where the free agents land. It should be a busy day with plenty of rumours already swirling around which will make updating your NHL 14 rosters in real time that much more fun. With that said, study your list of available free agents, turn on the show, overdose on Twitter, and get ready to drink.

The NHL Awards are back after taking a year off from the end-of-season gala during the lockout shortened season and it shouldn't be any different from previous years. From boring hosts, brutal music acts, and random "hockey fan" celebrities who butcher NHL stars names; the NHL Awards are often criticized for their shortcomings. Most award shows are tough to watch - especially for sports leagues - so why not throw back some beers with your friends and make it fun in your own way?

These amazing Simpsons inspired NHL logos come via @AK47_Studios and immediately make us want to get new beer league jerseys for the upcoming season. With a wide selection of characters to use from The Simpsons universe, the creator hit some of these spot on. There are so many great logos of the 30 created and we had a good debate about the best so we picked our Top 10. Check the rankings out after the logos!

After making it into 8 playoff games with the Pittsburgh Penguins these Stanley Cup Playoffs, Brian Gibbons was sent down to help out the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in their Calder Cup run. Despite ample playing time on Sidney Crosby's wing, Gibbons mustered 2 goals in the 8 games he cracked the roster and must have been saving all his skill for this goal in Game 7 of the AHL's Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Providence Bruins.
Already up 3-0 in the 2nd period, Gibbons has himself a fun game of keepaway as he wins the faceoff forward and gains control of the puck as he enters the Bruins zone before running out of room. Rather than send the puck into the corner for winger, Conor Sheary, or just dump it in and pressure the defence, Gibbons retreats out of the zone with Seth Griffith on his tail and Alexander Khokhlachev providing support. He makes a quick cut between the two Bruins forwards avoiding their stickchecks and has the awareness to stop up at the blueline to stay onside as Sheary clears the zone. As soon as that happens the shift takes on a whole new life as Gibbons puts it clear through poor Blake Parlett's legs for a semi-clear path to the net with David Warsofsky the last man who can catch him. Gibbons loses the puck and it actually works out for him as Warsofsky's pokecheck misses and Niklas Svedberg is left hung out to dry for Gibbons' Goal of the Year candidate as he tucks it five hole.
In summary we have 12 seconds of puck hoggin', 4 skaters beat, and 1 goalie dangled. Some players don't even get to hang onto the puck that long in an entire game and Gibbons made his count with this special goal.

The first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs is doneski and it was a great two weeks of hockey with some upsets, many blown leads, and hated rivals trying to kill each other. The playoffs are a different animal than the regular season and a player's clutchness and value are often based off of how they perform in the playoff months. With that said, let's take a look at the studs and duds of the first round.

Jagr sits tied for 6th all-time in NHL scoring which is a bit of surprise due in large part to the fact that he's played through three NHL Lockouts and played in the KHL for three years. Given his time away from the NHL, it's not unreasonable to think that he would have been only the second player in NHL history to hit the 2000-point mark and sit only behind the great Wayne Gretzky in career points.
