The Roundup

The NHL is boring, Kessel gets it done, is Matthews really better than Laine, what do the Canucks have at 5, remembering Gordie Howe, Flames buyouts, where will Yakupov go, the NHL draft, Vegas expansion, free agency, Randy Carlyle and more in this week’s Nation Roundup brought to you by Violent Gentlemen.
