Ten years ago today we were sitting at the breakfast table getting ready to match wits with a class at the U of A. The entire family was watching BBC News when they announced that a plane had accidentally crashed into the World Trade Center. As they cut to live footage and commentary, it was a matter of minutes until we saw the second plane crash into the second tower live.

Jay Feaster, after a long night, had woken up to head to the bathroom to deposit the remnants of the liter of cola he'd had just before bed. Suddenly, his room started to fill with fog and a sense of lost opportunity washed over him.
"My name is Jay."
"Oh yeah, Jaaayyyyy, I'm the Ghost of Draft Schmaft"
"What do you want with me?"
"I'm going to show you the damage that Calgary's terrible drafting has caused."
With that the thickening fog dissipated and Feaster and the ghostly spectre have moved to a chilling scene.

Earlier, I introduced on The Nations Network a new way of looking at a player's plus/minus rating, specifically to do with on-ice shot differential, in an effort to learn more about teams and players.
This month, somewhat regularly, I will break down types of players and teams in an effort to localize player talents and figure out exactly what certain teams need. There's definitely more to a hockey player than simply being "good" or "bad" and by how much, so today I will profile the defensive forward.

Feaster had barely had time to get back into his deep slumber when he was violently shaken awake and came face to face with a pair of demonic eyes.
Jay slowly rises from the bed and is promptly cut off at the knees by the apparition.
“Darcy Tucker? Are you the Spirit, sir, whose coming was foretold to me?”
“I am the Ghost of The No Movement Clause”
“All No Movement Clauses?”
“Of course not Jay. Your No Movement Clauses."
