I have two friends, like I have already mentioned, going in this first round of the NHL draft. They are Jake Gardener and Aaron Ness. They're both my boys, and though I don't know them really well, I'm excited for both of them and eager to see them succeed. Now, Ness is headed to the U of Minnesota, and Gardener to Wisconsin. Gardener is NHL ready in my opinion, but if eather of them need any seasoning, the WCHA (which is the best College Hockey conference in the nation) is the place to do it.
