2021 NHL Entry Draft
« on: July 16, 2021, 02:19:17 PM »
One week to go until what might be the messiest NHL entry draft ever.

July 23-24

Draft Rankings can be found consolidated on EliteProspects

And we're off to an inauspicious start

Oh good. Well, if there's one group of people who I want to be harsh judges of other people's "character", it's NHL executives.
I wish to hell I’d never said "Winning isn’t everything it’s the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you’ve won.

Obviously, this doesn't in any way absolve him of blame from his previous actions, but this does at least show some potential maturity and growth on his part, and that should be applauded.

(Though, the cynic in me is telling me this is all just so that he can try to get to near the top of the draft next year and get a max bonus contract)

The fact that the victim asked for a written apology and he sent a text message as the apology….and that his representative was demanding off the record conversations to promote how vindictive the woman was makes me question how much credit I’m going to give him for this.

Words are wind. It's a slight step up on Mitchell Miller if that's worth anything (not really). Any restitution or actions of contrition should be directed to the victim, rather than the hockey world.

I'm sure the massive Leafs scouting group is super looking forward to their 3 picks today.

There's not one but two Victor Hedman's in this draft apparently.

Probably going to take a run at Tony DeAngelo in free agency as well.
