• Actor Michael Rosenbaum and Los Angeles Kings Stanley Cup Champion Dustin Penner attend the "LEX LUTHOR: Drop of Doom" Media Day at Six Flags Magic Mountain last week, which is a little unfair, considering Michael Rosenbaum played Lex Luthor on "Smallville". Did he return the favor and ride "Dustin Penner's Pancake of Terror" later in the day?

• Nerd Alert: An awesome study by Eric T. that looks at how important play in the neutral zone is to play in the offensive and defensive zones: "It is still possible that neutral zone score (like hits or fighting majors) is reproducible but doesn't have much impact on the outcome of the game. And it's possible that offensive and defensive zone score (like shooting percentage or save percentage) has a huge impact on the outcome but fluctuates quite a bit." [NHL Numbers]

• Rob Oller wonders if Rick Nash might be able to remain a Columbus Blue Jackets captain into next season. [Columbus Dispatch]

• Coolness: "Miami Hockey will play outdoors at Solider Field next season in the inaugural Hockey City Classic — an outdoor college hockey doubleheader featuring four premier college programs. Miami will face off against Notre Dame and Minnesota battles Wisconsin." [Cincinnati.com]

• Corey Pronman of Hockey Prospectus has an updated prospects ranking for the NHL. On No. 1, the Florida Panthers: "The Panthers system is headlined by stud prospect Jonathan Huberdeau, but it goes on way beyond him. Florida has accumulated not only depth, but talented depth. I felt the top four systems were somewhat interchangeable, but the fact that Florida has so many good prospects and a few high-end ones put them over the top for me." [Puck Prospectus]

• Over 200 fans have signed a petition asking that the Anaheim Ducks fire GM Bob Murray. [Go Petition, via Anaheim Calling]

• T.J. Galiardi gets a new 1 year, $950,000 deal with the San Jose Sharks. "This seems like a fair deal for both parties as Galiardi gets a $220k raise over what his qualifying offer would have been and the Sharks have the benefit of a one-year term during which they can get a better sense of what value Galiardi provides to the club while not being committed to him past 2013 should he falter." [Fear The Fin]

• Silver Sevens is drooling over Bobby Ryan to the Ottawa Sentors. "He has a very reasonable contract for a player of his caliber, with 3 years left at 5.1 million dollars. He shoots right, but plays the left side and would obviously look great playing with Jason Spezza and on a power play with Erik Karlsson." [Silver Sevens]

• The Washington Capitals drop the South Carolina Stingrays as an affiliate and hook up with the Reading Royals. Stingrays: "The Capitals are a first-class organization and we wish them the very best in the future. Head Coach Spencer Carbery and I are working hard exploring options for the Stingrays." [SCS]

• The Calgary Flames are among ESPN's free agency winners. [ESPN]

• David H. Brown goes all Bill Pullman on the Minnesota Wild's free-agent blockbuster: "Governor Tim Pawlenty announced that hockey is Minnesota's official sport. All it took was 196 million dollars. This isn't the end. This isn't the parade. This isn't the celebration. This is Minnesota's 4th of July. This is our freedom. This is the beginning of our new franchise. This is our birth of a new sports city. This is just our start." [The Hockey Writers]
