HItting The Links: Draft Day Edition

Today's the day - the most overhyped, ridiculous popularity contest in the NHL gets underway with the NHL All-Star Draft. I can't embed this video, but here's hoping the Canadian TV show This Hour Has 22 Minutes gets a hold of some all-stars again this year. Hilarious. Any time Zdeno Chara gets to talk about eating babies, you know he's got to be having a good day.

After the links, Montreal won a game in ridiculous fashion last night; Grantland talks Zdeno Chara; and who will be in Phil Kessel's shoes this year?
