Undoubtedly helped with a little whisper in the ear of the Moose by the Canucks scouting staff. Wonder if that gives us any insight into who might be a target with one of the Canucks middle round picks?

Got your tickets for Ottawa yet?

Do you think? We will have to see.

Reservations aren't set yet but it should be fun. Maybe Myles Rumsey will be a late 7th rounder again for the pool pot.

See you there...
