You may have noticed that I've been posting a lot less over the past little bit. It'll probably be like that for another month or so; I've been working non-stop, and head out on the Five Hole For Food tour in a week. (We'll talk more about that in a couple of days!). You'll still see a bit of content from me, but for now, I think the other, more intelligent writers on the staff (everybody other than Bobby) have it under control.
With that said, the mailbag is still a thing! Catherine took it over for the past two weeks, but I'm back behind the wheel today to answer some of your questions.

First off, let me just start this by saying I think Kyle Dubas should be the next full-time general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs. You might disagree, but ask yourself, would you be alright with Shanahan naming himself to that title after what you've seen over the last year? If the answer is yes, you should also be okay with Dubas taking over.

Kelly McCrimmon, rumored for weeks now to be mulling over an offer to join the Leafs' front office, will turn it down. His junior club, the Brandon Wheat Kings, broke the news via their official website this afternoon.

There is a lot of information and analysis to consider when it comes to the NHL entry draft. Hundreds of draft eligible kids, thousands of stats lines, dozens of draft coverage publications/blogs and innumerable opinions about who is going to pick whom.
If you're like me, you probably spend a lot of time clicking from tab-to-tab in your browser, or wasting your time searching for draft reports, mock drafts and consensus rankings. So to make things easier for myself (and for you), I've compiled all the lists, ranks and tools I use to follow the draft.
