As I'm sure most of you already know, the city of Fort McMurray was ravaged by wildfires, creating the single biggest fire evacuation in Alberta's history. An 80,000 people were displaced from their homes and we felt as though it was the Nation's job to try to help raise money for those in need.

There are some polarizing players on this list and Jeff Petry certainly ranks among them when it comes to a thumbs-up or a thumbs down from fans and pundits during his time with the Edmonton Oilers. The thumbs-up crowd sees Petry as an effective defender who skates well, can move the puck and eat up second-pairing minutes.

A large moan was heard across Canada when Bill Daly showed the world that big, stupid Toronto Maple Leafs logo, signifying they're the winners of the first overall pick. Am I upset they won it? Yes. But we won the lottery of all lotteries with Connor McDavid, and nothing will compare to the feeling of winning him last year, not even Auston Matthews. Unfortunately the hockey gods were sending a message to the Oilers this year by not even giving them the second pick. Instead, the Oilers fell two more spots, landing the fourth overall pick.

The NHL Entry Draft tends to be exciting not just because of the young players available for selection to the league’s 30 member clubs, but also because it’s a sort of unofficial summer trade deadline. There’s a clock on each of those draft picks, and each general manager has to decide whether to spend them on young prospects or trade them for immediate help.
A year ago, Edmonton decided to cash in a lot of its picks for immediate help. It would surprise absolutely nobody if the Oilers did so once again.

In a surprise to no one Connor McDavid has been nominated for the Calder trophy. McDavid is going up against defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, and 48-year old Antemi Panarin. Who will win? That is yet to be seen. Who should win? It's obvious.
