Aside from the St. Louis Blues who are now home and dry, pretty much all of the favorites heading into the playoffs are on the ropes. It's been a wacky post-season for fans of playoff teams. Luckily the Flames, Leafs and Oilers faithful don't have to deal with such stress - all that's left for them is to sit back, await the draft and continue to pray for a Canucks first round upset (sorry Canucks fans).

This week on program we welcomed draft gurus Corey Pronman and Kirk Luedeke to talk prospects, as well Nation regulars Kent Wilson and Jonathan Willis to get a feel for the Flames and Oilers off-season.

As Canucks fans stare into the abyss of a potential first round upset, Oilers fans are left celebrating the only thing the team seems to win these days - the draft lottery. For the third straight year, Edmonton will select first overall in June, meaning the only thing left to debate is whether the club will pick Nail Yakupov or choose to plug other holes on the roster by trading down.

To tackle this question and other matters, Allan talked with a number of notable gents yesterday, including player agent Tom Lynn, advanced stats guru Gabriel Desjardins and Oil Kings play-by-play voice Corey Graham.
