Like a school boy anticipating his “first time” at post grad, I’m pretty stoked to be going to Montreal. A big shout out to loyal Nation reader Shaun Hunter, who hooked us up with some WestJet buddy passes to save us some bucks and donate more to the Stollery. Good work Shaun!

Well Grade 8 teacher, when you told us that ‘our attitude was going to get us nowhere in life and we wouldn't amount to anything’ we suppose “nowhere” meant Global News at 5 on June 24, 2009 and "amount to anything" meant Global News at 5 on June 24, 2009.

The 2009 NHL draft is almost upon us and on Friday some teams will make a selection that solidifies their organization; others will make choices that keep them spinning their wheels, while some will outright strike out.
In today’s game if you don’t draft well you have no chance of competing. Of course astute trades and free-agent signings are keys to success as well, but the foundation of every championship team is built through their draft.
