Ok, Bergeron 2.0 is a pretty unfair question to ask, but you can blame Jared McCann for that. His gifted offensive talents combined with the pride he takes in shutting the opposition down could make him a name that comes up in Selke talk in the future.
I was fortunate enough to talk to the projected mid-to-late first-rounder about his game, his development, and learning both ends of the ice. Warning: May also contain totally sweet highlight reel video.

Hey everyone! Steve "Dangle" Glynn here. I'll be in Philadelphia with Canucks Army overlord Dimitri Filipovic for this year's NHL Entry Draft! We'll be gathering lots of content, some team specific and some that everyone can enjoy, so I hope you like it! I'm not in Philly just yet but I wanted to get a head start with interviews of some of this year's draft prospects. Thanks for reading!

This is sad.
We've been worried about Gino Odjick's health from some time now, but the legendary Canuck tough guy confirmed by way of a letter published by the team website that he's been diagnosed with a terminal disease called AL amyloidosis, causing the body's antibody-producing cells to not function properly. Per Odjick, he could be down to "months or weeks".

Was the big reveal for our No. 1 prospect dramatic? Heck no. While the competition for 3, 4 and 5 came down to single votes, Sam Reinhart of the Kootenay Ice steamrolled everybody, our unanimous No. 1 prospect with his name showing up first on every ballot.
So what do we know Central Scouting doesn't? Not a whole lot, but I think it comes down to what we value in a hockey player.
