Jesus! I go to sportsnet this morning and there are at least 5 articles written by different "insiders" on the website about the leafs new assistant gm hiring. I guess with rogers getting the NHL rights over tsn, it's gonna be more of the same leaf loving...

The Hockey Sweater by Roch Carrier!!! The Wheel of Time series is an all time favourite of mine. A Song of Ice and Fire is also fantastic. Recently I've been reading a lot of Brandon Sanderson. If you're into the fantasy genre like myself, then I would definitely recommend the Mistborn series, or The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance.

Spot on! I find Darren Dreger will always say stuff similar to that last paragraph. For example, "It's likely that the thing will happen, but I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't."

I think Vancouver were a couple slots ahead of the Habs in the 2010 draft and had the intention of drafting Tinordi. But the Habs realized this and seized the opportunity to move up and select him first.

From what I remember in 2003, AK was projected as a top 5 talent in the draft, but fell back to the Habs at 10th due to health concerns.
- Comment on Habs’ Bergevin beaten out for NHL’s GM of the Year Award (2014-06-25 10:54:04)
NHL players learn pretty early that if you show too much personality on the ice or off it, the media dinosaurs will crucify them for "disrespecting the game" or "arrogance" or "classless behaviour."
- Comment on Canadiens will retire Guy Lapointe’s No. 5 (2014-06-19 06:20:58)
Yes, it's awesome to have players who are passionate about playing for the Habs. And, like Dale Weise, they don't necessarily have to be from Quebec. Just look at PK Subban, he grew up in Toronto as a Canadiens fan.

What about Adam Larsson? I don't pay attention to the Devils at all, but it seems like he doesn't play much with them. He was pretty highly touted a few years ago. Is he just being brought along slowly like most defencemen or has his stock with New Jersey fallen and he's available for trade?
- Comment on Markov looking for three-year, $18-million deal: report (2014-06-16 15:10:29)
I think, for this draft, Bergevin will continue to target forwards with decent size and power forward potential.
