The simple reason why I trust Brendan Shanahan
Toronto - May. 15, 2015: As the offseason progresses, Toronto fans are starting to get impatient with the lack of development in their front office. With still no GM hired, and a coaching hire unlikely until Mike Babcock makes his decision, Leaf fans are beginning to get restless. Some have even started to question Team President Brendan Shanahan. There is however, an element of Shanahans leadership that makes me confident he will hire the right GM.
Oilers: Let the Chiarelli, Nicholson regime begin
Edmonton - Apr. 25, 2015: While it did not come as a complete surprise, yesterday's appointment of Peter Chiarelli as the Edmonton Oilers new President of Hockey Operations and General Manger, it still managed to send shock waves throughout Oilers Nation. With Connor McDavid already firmly in this organization's back pocket, Bob Nicholson wasted little time in changing his management team and Craig MacTavish has no one but himself to blame for no longer being in the position he has held for the last two years.

Stoney Point - Apr. 21, 2015: It was great to see NHL Playoff Hockey return to Winnipeg last night as the Winnipeg Jets played host to the Anaheim Ducks. Congrats to David Thompson, True North and the fans of Winnipeg. I remember watching Dale Hawerchuk play there in front of the infamous Winnipeg Whiteout - where fans all wear white for playoff games.
Oilers: Connor McDavid will do just fine in 
Edmonton
Edmonton - Apr. 20, 2015: While the vast majority of hockey fans decided to lose their collective minds over news of the Edmonton Oilers winning what has essentially become the Connor McDavid Sweepstakes during Saturday's Draft Lottery, this notion that he is headed to some sort of wasteland for No. 1 picks is downright idiotic. While the frustration of seeing him go to the Oilers is understandable, people need to give their heads a shake.
In an unscientific study, McDavid goes to the Buffalo Sabres
Stoney Point - Apr. 17, 2015: This weekend will be a big weekend for the NHL TV ratings. On top of the excitement of the first round playoff games, there will also be the NHL Draft Lottery to see who will win the right to draft Erir Otters phenom Connor McDavid. Will it be the Buffalo Sabres, Ariozona Coyotes, Edmonton Oilers, Toronto Maple Leafs or some other team?
