A fascinating in-depth analysis of six of the NHL’s most interesting drafts


From Guy Lafleur to Sidney Crosby to Connor McDavid, the annual draft of hockey’s most talented young prospects has long been considered the best route to Stanley Cup glory.

How did the Red Wings turn their franchise around so dramatically in the 1989 Draft?

Always informative and entertaining, Inexact Science encapsulates the many compelling, wild, and unique stories in five-plus decades of NHL Draft history.
