When I took over here at Mile High Sticking the Water Cooler Chatter series was a great way to get daily news out about what was going on day by day with the league. I then decided I would keep the WCC as a during the season series so it would not crowd the blog during some of the offseason series. Now with the draft quickly approaching news around the NHL is on fire which calls for a reboot, even if on temporary, of the WCC. So lets get it going!

Here are your links for Monday June 20th:
