Happy Friday everybody, and welcome to the Musket Rounds. Today's assortment is pretty Revolution-centric, thanks to the fact that there's a game tomorrow. Plus, there's a bunch of speculation over what inevitable roster moves the Revs are poised to make. With three open spots as of July 1st, there's a whole bunch of things New England could do, and I wouldn't be terribly surprised if they had the room for a DP. They definitely have the cap space for a Young DP. Anyways, on to the Rounds.
