Yes it is that time of year again folks. That time when eternal optimism rises no matter how poorly one’s hockey team has performed in the past. It’s springtime - when budding flowers are awaiting to be picked so they can be nurtured and blossom into beauties. In other words it is the week of the 2012 NHL entry draft. The time when hockey clubs and their fan bases are hoping to hit the jackpot with player(s) that will vault their teams into Stanley Cup Champions.
