    Sunday afternoon? Well now you’re just showing off!

    Great stuff from Cullen about Burke, he talks about Toronto missing out on free agents because they don’t like to frontload. Sounds like there’s some media in TOR who are beginning to get impatient with the Grate One.

    Bugg’s a freak on the draft and he has a really interesting reason for believing one Oiler prospect might go right from junior to the NHL.

    Kent Simpson played for coach Renney and offers great insight into how Renney’s style might help Cam Barker.

    Luedeke loved the Oilers draft, thought it was the best of the 30 teams.

    speeds has a very unique way of looking at the draft and had some good insight into the early free agent moves.

    PLUS I haven’t emailed the winner of the contest yet, so it might be YOU if you entered.

    Just saying. 🙂

    @ Wanye, just like the government in China, when you don’t like what you see, you censor. LOL

    I see you CORRECTED the last post so that segment 7 isn’t segment 6 as you originally had it.

    YOU can’t rewrite history. LOL

    What is the point of being a bubble team? good for management, but lower draft pick. And if the rumours are true D-men in next year draft will be very strong. Getting a player like Ryan Murray, Nick Ebert, Jacob Trouba, Griffin Reinhart, and Mathew Dumba.
