Shrapnel - 6/6/12

Tonight could see a new champion, or it could see a victory from a desperate club trying to keep themselves alive.

Despite the importance of what could happen on the ice, though, the Kings have taken the time to help their community. Salud, guys.

Closer to home, Jeff Little looks at the perception of the front office at TMM, while Tom discuses the state of the hot stove at DBJ+.

In Toronto, there are rumors that Brian Burke could be on the hot seat...which appear to be created and refuted solely by the media. Is he really in trouble? Very doubtful - the idea of replacing a GM with less than three weeks before the draft is crazy - not to mention the fact that the team is in process of being sold, and that kind of chaos would be totally unattractive to the new owners.

At Icethetics, they've got some logos for the ECHL's anniversary and this year's AHL outdoor game.

At #CBJ.com, there's another community spotlight for John T. Kemp, Puck Rakers takes a look at Chris Clark joining the front office, DBJ thinks about the clowns to the left and jokers to right, and an amazing CBJ collection from a season ticket holder.

THW Overtime looks at Justin Schultz controlling his destiny, Michel Therrien is taking over as the new head coach in Montreal, and John Tortorella had an interview that may or may not have helped his reputation.

Finally, our thoughts are with Dominic Moore and his family as his wife battles a rare form of liver cancer. Some fans had previously criticized Moore's departure from the playoffs, but this puts the matter in new perspective. Even the most die-hard hockey fan will understand that some things are more important than the chance to win the Stanley Cup - and this is most certainly one of them.
