Victoria Royals and the 2017 Bantam Draft

A day after winning the title of “Smartest WHL Club” with their 2016-2017 WHL Scholastic Team of the Year award, the Victoria Royals were hoping for some genius picks of their own at the WHL Bantam Draft. Only time will tell how many of these draft picks will turn into quality junior players, but for these players¬†picked,¬†it was a positive step in the direction of becoming a professional hockey player. Of course, if you were not picked in the WHL Bantam Draft, it doesn’t necessarily mean your career is dead.

How I Would Fix the Vancouver Canucks: Part One

There are a lot of sports fans who sit at home and watch their favourite team suck it up year after year and believe that if they were in charge, they could do a hell of a better job than Jim Benning whoever is in charge. As somebody who is not at all qualified to become a General Manager of an NHL team (besides the hundreds of hours playing hockey video games), I’m going to work my way into fixing the Vancouver Canucks by making a series of decisions that will eventually lead to this team becoming a dynasty. Part One will include finding a new head coach, making decisions on the Expansion Draft and the NHL Entry Draft.
