Daily Links for Sunday, August 1

My apologies that the links are a bit late today, but it's a lazy Sunday, and I woke up in the late afternoon. Since the summer is a dry spell for hockey news, once a week or so I'm going to try something new - the "If you read one thing today, make it this one" link. All sort of hockey topics will be covered, but these articles were all pulled from previous links posts, and represent the absolute best of what we've put here, things that everyone, as a hockey fan, should read. So, if you read one thing today, make it this:

 

The System - The Goose's Roost
Ryan over at the Roost pens the best post I've ever read analyzing the Sabres organization, why they do the things they do, and why we do the things we do.

 

*Regular links return tomorrow.
