In my books, Stu MacGregor had a pretty sharp hockey mind long before he became GM of the Kamloops Blazers in 1995 or joined the scouting staff of the Edmonton Oilers in 2000. A lot of people feel the same way now, especially since he became Edmonton's chief scout in 2007.

In junior high or high school voting always seemed to be a popularity contest. You had the hot chick or the jock running for class president even though in most cases they were more interested in winning, rather than actually doing anything. I'm sure there were some who ran, and won, who really wanted to make a difference and improve the cafeteria food, or change the dress code. Today, I'm sure the Pres. argues for the right to update your facebook status in math class, or to wear belly shirts or other serious matters.
The scary part is that some of you probably voted in junior high, but you don't vote now. I don't care who you won't for to be honest, and I have no interest in trying to influence your vote, but if the country was to put a sports slant on voting I bet many of you would get to the polls before they close.

This is Jonathan Huberdeau. A late surge during the QMJHL's regular season moved him into lottery territory. A stunning playoff performance could move him higher and he's not alone.
