Here are your Puck Headlines: a glorious collection of news and views collected from the greatest blogosphere in sports and the few, the proud, the mainstream hockey media.

• The L.A. Kings Stanley Cup parade went right through Amateur Body Art-Con 2012.

• It's the great Montreal Canadiens assistant coach shuffle! Gerard Gallant, coach for the Saint John Sea Dogs and former NHLer, will assist Michel Therrien this season. [Gazette]

• Meanwhile, a former Montreal scapegoat resurfaces with the Winnipeg Jets: "The Winnipeg Jets are pleased to announce today the hiring of Perry Pearn as Assistant Coach. Pearn will join Head Coach Claude Noel and the rest of the Jets coaching staff which includes Charlie Huddy, Pascal Vincent, Wade Flaherty and Tony Borgford." [Jets]

• Detroit Red Wings blog's take on the Ryan Suter sweepstakes: "Hell, if I'm Kenny Holland, I'd be on the phone with David Polie trying to acquire Suter's rights right now. Personally, I'd offer up Jakub Kindl and a draft pick. Make it a 5th or 6th round pick and if Suter signs it gets upgraded to a 3rd or 4th." [Winging It]

• If Douglas Murray is available, Edmonton and about 28 other teams might be interested. [Oilers Nation]

• What arbitration means for Mason Raymond and the Vancouver Canucks. [Nucks Misconduct]

• Will Mats Sundin have to wait for the Hockey Hall of Fames? [Sun Media]

• The Goldwater Institute sues to block Glendale's deal with Greg Jamison for the Phoenix Coyotes: "Glendale and NHL officials have said they believe the lease agreement with Jamison is likely to go forward despite any lawsuit because it does not require a bond sale as the previous deal did. The lease agreement calls for all parties to bear the costs of contesting any court challenges." [AZ Central]

• From a Columbus Blue Jackets blog, why it's time for them to part ways with Rick Nash: "Unless you believe that the Jackets are ready to be perennial playoff participants RIGHT NOW, it's time to let Nash go." [The Cannon]

• Crossing Broad speculates as a house that may or may not be owned by Chris Pronger, who may or may not be living in it, is for sale. [Crossing Broad]

• The 10 best plays of the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs. [Backhand Shelf]

• The Tampa Bay Lightning have entered into a multi-year affiliation agreement with the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League on Thursday, Lightning Assistant General Manager Julien BriseBois announced. Syracuse will serve as the Lightning's top affiliate starting with the 2012-13 regular season. Tampa Bay will provide the Crunch with its top prospects under both NHL and AHL contracts. [Lightning]

• Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray has a crazy idea: Signing Erik Karlsson should be a priority. [CP]

• Tom Gaglardi and the rebirth of the Dallas Stars: "You build through the draft. You develop. You coach. That's the philosophy I come with. I think there's been enough cases around the NHL to show that you cannot buy a winner. I believe in the old fashioned way of building from within." [Stars]

• The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced Thursday the appointment of David Quinn as the team's assistant coach.  Quinn will join Tim Army behind the bench as the two assistants under head coach Joe Sacco. [Avs]

• The Calgary Flames name Martin Gelinas as an assistant coach. And, hopefully, as an extra forward for their next game against the Lightning to settle the score … [Flames]

• Scott Hockey … not exactly a Michael Del Zotto guy. [Scotty Hockey]

• Good stuff on the draft with BD Gallof and Bob McKenzie. [CBS Sports]

• Finally, enjoy the country rock and casual misogyny of Tyler Hogben's "Puck Bunny Girl."
