The Rest of the Cleanup of my Feed Reader 5/20

This is the rest of the things I think that are newsworthy for today. I will try and keep these going everyday with some other posts that I promise are coming tommorrow. So now, here's the rest 0f the story.

Aaron Ward signed a 2 year. $5 million dollar extension with the Bruins today. Brief coverage by Bruins Blog.

The Sporting News has announced its players of the year, with Ovechkin getting Player of the Year, Patrick Kane getting Rookie of the Year, Mike Babcock with Coach of the Year, and Bob Gainey getting Executive of the Year. Press release seen here.

The Star-Telegram is reporting that Dallas coach Dave Tippett is going to get an contract extension soon. With the deep run that the Stars made this season, this is no shock.

According to Behind the Jersey, the Wings sold 8000 tickets for the Stanley Cup Series in 10 minutes. 5 hours later there were 100 tickets left. Nothing like the 8 minute run on tickets that Buffalo had in 1999 but just as impressive.

According to the CBC, Wayne Gretzky is not going to be leaving the Phoenix Coyotes for the President job for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Scott Mellanby is going to be joining the Vancouver Canucks organization as a consultant. Mellanby played for 20 seasons after finally retiring with the Thrashers. Story from the Province.

NBCSports.com believes that with Crosby being in his first Stanley Cup Final may bring more attention to the Finals. So far the playoff ratings have increased and with a dream final matchup for the league, Finals ratings can only have high hopes.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette takes a look at the cap issues that the Penguins will have during this offseason trying to keep as many players as they can from this playoff run.

Johan Franzen is improving for the Red Wings and may be ready to play in Game 1. Story from the CBC.

Finally, it seems that the Rangers and Jaromir Jagr are starting negotiations for a new contract. With the issues in consistency that the Rangers have seen out of Jagr, it would not shock me that these two parties split ways. Jagr has been all right as of late, but the Rangers seem to focus all of their plays with Jagr being the finisher. Hence why the Pens made quick work of them. Story from the CBC.
