If you weren’t in the Edmonton area Wednesday night, you likely didn’t get to hear Georges Laraque speaking with Jason Gregor on the Team 1260. In this nearly 20 minute long interview Laraque discusses his health issues, his desire to get another chance to end his career on his own terms, and how he feels he could help the Oilers more than any other team in the league next season:

As for the Impending frenzy...
WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Malcolm Subban could have followed in his brother's footsteps and tried to skate his way to the NHL as a defenseman. Staying on the blue line worked out well for P.K. Subban, even if the Canadiens defenseman sometimes gives the impression that he'd rather be a forward with his frequent forays deep into the opposition's end. That was never Malcolm...

For the first time in years, the Montreal Canadiens have rolled into the offseason with a (seemingly) clear plan and direction.
By now you've certainly heard about the successful haul Montreal had at last weekend's draft.
