Time to get your week started with the latest links, including a lot of feel-good pieces about the new Sens ownership:

- Your recap of yesterday's 3–2 pre-season win over the Leafs. It's just the pre-season, but it still feels good.

- Steve Warne starts us off with an analysis on how Andlauer did all the right things in his introductory press conference, including praising Alfie without committing him to any specific role

- Of course, Ian Mendes has the must-read analysis of the presser, and it's very optimistic. It's a recurring theme this morning: optimism.

- Andlauer's choice to namedrop Gatineau (in French!) was also a great touch

- Rocco Tullio, one of Andlauer's co-buyers, is looking forward to the new NHL partnership with a former OHL rival. As a reminder, Andlauer is the face and majority owner but there are also many minority owners.

- Garrioch says what I've been saying, which is that the Pinto situation is very similar to the Brady situation a couple years ago. Why can't I work for The Sun?

- Djibril Toure, who impressed on an ATO, has been signed to a 3-year entry-level deal

- Jacob Billington looks at how critical centre depth is for championship teams, and hence why the Sens need Pinto. On this topic, everyone agrees.

- Yahoo! lists 4 teams who could win the Cup after missing the playoffs. I'm down with Pittsburgh, but the other 3 don't feel any more likely than Ottawa to me

- The Flyers could be trading Carter Hart or Travis Sanheim. I'm glad that with Korpisalo and Forsberg, the Sens won't be rumoured in the Hart takes—unless it's Stützle for the Hart

- Some kind words on Nic Kerdiles, who died in a motorcycle accident over the weekend

- ESPN with a cool look at the first NHL game played in Australia

- CBC looks at how the PWHL could change international women's hockey

- Also in PWHL news, a handy look at remaining free agents, Europeans who may come over, and more

- And finally, a fun look at Stützle's filthy release from yesterday
