The Nations Network is sending this Jets blogger to the 2014 Young Stars Tournament in Penticton, BC. I'll be judging your team and bringing you live scouting reports. Check out last year's wrap-up piece here.
The Young Stars Tournament is here again! I'll be there all weekend to scout, blog, and dry out my insides with Okanagan Events Centre popcorn. You can follow me on twitter (@kevinmccart) for live insights, or check out the Nations Network of blogs for game and player reviews.
Inside we'll reflect a bit on last year's tournament and take a look at the Oilers' Young Stars roster. Have a player, story or system you're excited about? Let me know in the comments!

With training camp fast approaching, the excitement is starting to flood through the Nation. The schedule is out, rosters are being debated, rookie camp is set to go, and there's finally news to talk about after a long summer drought. As such, all this NHL activity has got me to thinking. Today, I take a look at the new spin-o-rama ban, Leon Draisaitl, and Marty Brodeur. As always, your disagreements are encouraged.
