I was actually going to link to HockeyBuzz - which is a sentence I never thought I'd write - because Travis Yost has been doing some phenomenal work with the Senators' finances. It's the kind of thing that you would expect a "sports reporter" would do, but is instead left to enterprising hobbyists who have no access to lose. Here's hoping Yost gets picked up somewhere that isn't known for being the pit of hockey writing.

Anyways, here're some links.
