By winning the draft lottery and adding Connor McDavid to a group that already includes 1st overall picks Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nail Yakupov, and 2014 3rd overall pick Leon Draisatl, 2013 7th overall pick Darnell Nurse, and Jordan Eberle, the Edmonton Oilers really put the “Embarrassment” in “Embarrassment of riches”.

On today's episode, the guys talk about McDavid to Edmonton, the mess in San Jose, and what do the Leafs do with the 4th pick.

Rob Ford is a Millionaire, a city councillor, an occasional radio host, the former mayor of Toronto, a football coach, a crack smoker, and a Hockey Hall of Fame board member. So it's fair to say that he brings, uh, let's call it a 'unique perspective' on topics big and small.
From gravy railways to cunilingus to skipping the Pride Parade, Ford isn't afraid to publicly express his unpopular opinions in loud and declarative tones. On Tuesday afternoon, he chimed in on who should take over the Maple Leafs as the organization's next general manager and head coach.
Ford's pick for general manager? He's with pretty much everyone in the 6ix, in sharing the Mike Babcock pipe dream (pun intended). And who does Ford think should be the Maple Leafs' next bench boss? For that Ford's going off the board and throwing his weight behind a throwback candidate, Mr. 'Iron' Mike Keenan.

Marlies have added former OHL goalie Justin Nichols on an ATO. Played past two seasons with the Guelph Storm— Kyle Cicerella (@KyleTheReporter) April 21, 2015
The Marlies have made yet another ATO signing, this time Justin Nichols, goaltender for the Guelph Storm. These signings are wonderful because it means the Marlies/Solar Bears rosters will be filled out with players that are developing, rather than players who have seen the door shut on any possibility of making the NHL. Getting another goaltender in the system especially makes sense, as goaltenders tend to develop a bit slower and are harder to project in their late teens/early 20s.

The Leafs are out of hockey games to lose. They didn't end up with the promised child, Connor McDavid. Unsurprisingly, the topics here have changed a little bit. The focus has shifted to the organizational players that are still playing, and typically that involves the surging Toronto Marlies. Here's four questions you had about the team, plus a raging outlier.
