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.

The old saying "nice guys finish last" isn't true. Sometimes, they wear the C for a NHL team like the Edmonton Oilers that finishes 11th and misses the playoffs by six points.

I enjoy sports talk radio and I'm hardly an impartial party in this town, being a newspaperman who is trying to learn the art of saying something people want to hear after spending most of my career trying to write something they wanted to read.

This shouldn't come as a news flash, but the Edmonton Oilers are interested in Dany Heatley and will pick up the phone between now and the NHL Entry Draft and speak to Ottawa GM Bryan Murray about what it might take to pry him from the Senators.

Forget the buzz surrounding rumours Sheldon Souray has put his house on the market -- it means nothing in the context of whether or not he wants to be traded by the Edmonton Oilers. Besides, I don't even know for sure if it's true.
