Some of the past week’s links from around the ‘sphere and beyond…

Copper and Blue (Ryan Batty) – Taylor Hall Agrees To A Seven Year Extension: Steve Tambellini does good work here. You should be happy. If you’re not, what makes you happy?
Black Dog Hates Skunks – A Very Good Day: Another reaction about the Taylor Hall signing, this one from Black Dog Pat

Will Colten Teubert lock down an NHL Job? If so, when? (Jonathan Willis / Cult of Hockey) The Journal’s Jonathan Willis looks at the key component of the Dustin Penner trade.
