The youngest of the Subban brothers is the relatively diminutive Jordan Subban, a defender for the OHL's Belleville Bulls. At 5'9" and 180 pounds, Jordan doesn't have the size of elder sibling and probable Norris trophy winner PK Subban, but he does have a similar offensive flair. If he was 6'2", Jordan would almost certainly be a top-30 pick this year, but his size and the problems associated with being smaller in the NHL (particularly as a defensman) have him projected as a probable 2nd-3rd rounder this year.

This past season seemed poised to be Lance Bouma's best chance yet at being able to make himself a permanent fixture on the big club. However, we never got to see if that was going to be the case.

1. Ramo is locked up
It may have been just a formality at this point, and no they can't reveal terms until July 5, but I guess it's nice to have some level of confirmation that they got the Karri Ramo contract done in something resembling a timely fashion.
I'm not surprised by the multi-year term and I probably won't be surprised by whatever the money is (unless it's really low, I guess), but it really does look like they're going to run a battery of Joey MacDonald, Reto Berra and Ramo, which I think is very interesting.

When you watch the NHL's conference finals from a Flames perspective, it's hard not to get a bit jealous. The four teams involved have recently been incredibly smart - and, let's face it, lucky - drafters, but they've also managed to build their clubs in a specific way. The teams are young, fast and strong, but aren't horribly green or inexperienced. They boast some older veterans, but aren't old and slow, either. They have players of almost every age and their youth is distributed carefully throughout their rosters.
