Silver Nuggets: ISS Draft rankings; Another mock draft; Senators off-season plan

Hi all, after the long weekend, the Silver Nuggets are back. I will admit, I have kind of stopped watching hockey, so end the playoffs already and bring on the draft! Or I guess we can let Vancouver go through the formality, whatever works.

With that brief introduction, here are today's links:
