The Last Gladiators is a documentary about hockey, but it focuses mainly on former NHLer Chris Nilan. The film is honest, funny, realistic and heartbreaking. Nilan talks openly about his career, his drug and alcohol addiction as well as his upbringing with an abusive father. It is currently playing in Edmonton at Movies 12 at 5074 137 avenue.
There was an advance screening in Edmonton a few weeks back and after the movie I spoke with Nilan. After a Q and A with the audience he agreed to do an interview about the movie. He was just as candid in the interview as he was in the movie. I didn't omit any of his responses and the following interview is just a small sample of what you'll see in theatres.

Another packed day of KHL action here - 11 games!!! That's more than 10 games. It's science.
Yakupov's looking great, Malkin's looking great, some familiar names, some new ones, and some crazy finishes.
Check it out and enjoy!

David Musil has played in Edmonton colors before, and will play for the Oilers soon. For now, he's trading in his Giants uniform for an Oil King set. David Musil is a huge upgrade for the OK Blue.

While Justin Schultz is one of the biggest benefactors of this lockout, Devan Dubnyk might be one of the biggest losers. He just signed a two-year extension with the hopes he'd have the opportunity to prove he can be a #1 goalie. The lockout has been a massive roadblock in those plans thus far, and I wonder if being the Oilers' PA representative makes it even more frustrating for him.
I caught up with Dubnyk and got his thoughts on the CBA, being the Oilers representative, the Roberto Luongo rumours and how he is trying to keep his goaltending skills sharp.

It's time for our third and final piece of looking at different statistical ways to project how many points each of the Oilers will score.
If you're just tuning in, we explained our methodology in more detail in our first piece, which covered the top-six forwards. We followed that up with a look at the defensemen and finally we'll take a look at the remaining, secondary forwards.
