    The flip side of "health" is "depth".  If you have the latter, you can endure not having the former.  And while a Vezina-calibre goalie is an advantage, I would argue that while the Vezina is awarded more »

    The proof will be the on-ice product.  While I like the moves that Benning has made, I doubt that this team can make the playoffs until 2016-17, at the earliest.  The West is simply too stacked with C more »

    Burkie made what was probably the finest pre-draft moves ever, in order to get the #2 and #3 picks, while convincing Atlanta that Patrik Stefan was a legit #1.  Can you imagine any team getting two pi more »
