The 20 best names available in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft

The Canucks have drafted extremely well over the last couple years. No, I’m not talking about drafting future superstars or quality NHL depth; I’m talking about drafting players with great names. At the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, the Canucks selected one of the best names available in the fourth round when they picked defenceman Jack Rathbone. In 2018, they grabbed another defenceman with one of the best names in the draft when they got Jett Woo in the second round. That’s two elite names in back-to-back drafts. Add in some solid depth names like Petrus Palmu and Artem Manukyan, and the Canucks have clearly made out like bandits at the draft, name-wise.

B.C.'s Bowen Byram aiming to be next Morgan Rielly

We submit yet another piece of evidence that the blueprint for the ideal NHL defenceman today and beyond has changed for the smaller, the quicker, and the more offensive-minded.

Upon further examination...

Bowen Byram voiced what every prospect at the NHL's scouting combine was thinking going into the event's final day.

For those who will be in withdrawl after the Finals, you'll still have this to look forward to...

There are no shortage of names out there in the summer rumour mill already, but today we focus on 10 players who, if they were traded, would constitute a blockbuster.

Being Tom Wilson: Inside the life of hockey's most hated man | CBC Sports

Tom Wilson tries not to read everything about him on social media. You'd think being on the receiving end of endless tweets and messages that are, well, not suitable for work would be reason enough to skip them. But Wilson can't just ignore it all because sometimes it goes beyond hockey.

#12 Goes To The Rafters Tonite in Cowtown!!

Jarome Iginla’s accomplishments as a Flame are well documented, leaving the franchise as its leader in goals, points and games played, but what has truly left a lasting impression is Iginla’s humility and his respect for others. Jermain Franklin has more on the legacy he left in Calgary ahead of his No.12 jersey being retired Saturday night.

Tough Love

Brian Burke recalls the conversation he had with Kadri's dad after drafting him. Kadri Sr. told Burke to swat Nazem in the head if he gives him any trouble. The Leafs forward laughed it off saying Burke and his dad were two peas in a pod.
