It doesn't matter where they come from, all they need to do is stop the damn puck. In Canada, more phone calls have been made in search of goalies (all the way from pick up games to rec league to pro hockey) than the search for girls. Well, maybe not but it's close.

The color and depth of this year's entry draft is becoming clear. Any number of us could jot down the top 10 and be reasonably close to correct on draft day, with only the Memorial Cup and the combine (plus interviews) as a major event on the draft calendar. How far can we reasonably project this year's draft?

It's been building. Quietly. The "Craig MacTavish" rumblings in regard to an NHL coaching position have been building for the last several weeks. A few funny items on his tsn appearances about his future as a coach, a Matty drop in the EJ. The next shoe to drop? An "out of town" newspaper has him on the radar.
