You can believe all the talk this afternoon the Edmonton Oilers are in hot pursuit of Ottawa Senators malcontent Dany Heatley because I'm hearing the very same words from a source close to the situation.

If you love something as much as Rod Phillips loves calling hockey games with the Edmonton Oilers, and you're as good at it as he is, you should do it until they rip the microphone from your hands.

You don't want guesses from rank amateurs. Mock drafts? Pfft. You want THE LIST. You want to know what name will be on the tip of the tongue of Oilers GM Steve Tambellini when he steps to the podium in Montreal Friday with the 10th pick at the NHL Entry Draft.

Until three years ago, Father's Day was a day I tried to ignore. A day I wanted to come and go as quickly as possible. It had been a day that made me dark and sad and envious and angry. It was a day I always ended up feeling sorry for myself, and loathing how I always fell into that trap. I'm guessing I'm not alone in that.

Short of a Stanley Cup final, covering the NHL Entry Draft used to be the highlight of the season during my newspaper days.
Likewise, between chasing down trade rumours, trying to get the inside dope on who was talking to whom and buzz about top prospects, it was obvious fans couldn't get enough of what scribes would tap out.
