Imagine a party at Ed Snider’s house that includes Brian Burke, Dale Tallon, Garth Snow, and that is hosted by Paul Holmgren. Pretty good recipe for some wicked antics, I think. Some crank calls to the Oval Office, maybe getting $500 worth of pizza delivered to Donald Fehr’s place, and you know Snow doesn’t go home that night without a wedgie.*

1. The basics to keep in mind
The thing with the addition of this new general manager, finally replacing Jay Feaster after all this time, is that you always knew how it would go down.

Tonight may be the final Abbotsford Heat game ever.
After dropping Game 1 2-1 in a double-overtime heartbreaker and then facing a 7-2 stomping from the same Grand Rapids Griffins the next night, the Heat are down 2-0 in their best-of-five series.
If they lose tonight, it's all over.
Puck drop is at 5pm MT on TeamRadio.ca and AHL Live pay-per-view stream.

In anticipation of the 2014 NHL Draft, most every site and blog covering an NHL franchise on the internet will post rankings, previews and mock drafts to get its readers geared up for the events that will take place this June in Philly.
We, no different than every site and blog on the internet, are of course doing the same. However, instead of me telling you a bunch of stuff about this draft class that you may or may not choose to believe, I figured it would be more constructive to get the basics from real scouts themselves. We'll still have the regular profiles of top prospects to watch and plenty of other goodies, but throughout the lead up to this years draft, we'll sit down with a scout from every area/league supplying the draft with talent, to get a gauge of what kind of crop we'll see yielded from that particular zone. That means WHL, OHL, QMJHL, USHL/NCAA and Europe will all be covered over the course of the next couple months.
Today, we kick off our Scout Series with a look at the WHL
