A guide to this morning’s must-read stories around the NHL.

• Kevin Paul Dupont leads off Sunday’s best notes column with thoughts on Derek Sanderson and the latest cranky old man ramblings from Montgomery Burns Jeremy Jacobs.

• Is the seat under Caps’ GM George McPhee getting a little warm? He could be on the hook if the winless Caps don’t turn things around in a big way this season. That parade to the penalty box might be a big part of the team’s problem.

• With another two-goal game in Saturday’s 4-0 win over the hapless Avs, Eddie Munster Patrick Marleau ties a 96-year-old record.

• If last night’s Dallas-St. Louis contest was the first hockey game you’d ever watched, you could be forgiven to thinking that David Perron is the best player in the world. That was a jaw-dropping performance. Here are the highlights .

• Should the Maple Leafs offer sheet P.K. Subban? Only if they’ve somehow forgotten about giving up on the top-10 draft picks that turned into Tyler Seguin and Dougie Hamilton.

• Find a place to stay or a bum a ride back to junior? For the 10 players who’ll burn the first year of their contract if they skate in their sixth game, it’s time to find out.

• There wasn’t much to smile about after Edmonton’s loss 4-3 to Calgary, but another impressive performance from rookie Justin Schultz was the obvious exception.

• Minnesota’s deep talent pool, not free batting lessons from Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire, swayed Zach Parise to sign with the Wild.

• Wait, the Jackets need to figure out if Steve Mason can play goal for them? . That’s still a question?

• I have no idea what a Bud-and-Doodle Jump sloth fest is, but apparently the Florida Panthers were at one and missed the start of Saturday’s game with the Flyers. Or something.
