Every year at the NHL Draft, we feel the need to break up the monotony of questions about rankings, team meetings and professional aspirations with some of our patented goofy nonsense. In 2009, it was favorite and least favorite jerseys. In 2010, it was dream cars. In 2012, we asked which animal they’d like to fight. (In which we discovered Nail Yakupov would fight a cat.)
