Evander Kane has plenty of reason to be happy. But he could be even happier.

On the surface, it seems like Evander Kane has it all. He has a $31.5 million contract with the Winnipeg Jets (whenever the NHL resumes play), talent that allowed him to score 30 goals in the best league in the world at the age of 20, all the fast food grub you could possibly want, and a follower count on Twitter that exceeds 106,000 (even though he isn't exactly all that frequent a tweeter).

But two things that he doesn't have are a satisfactory background and header image for his @Kane9JETS Twitter account. And that's why he has laid down the gauntlet to not only Jets and Evander Kane fans, but anyone with some semblance of creativity and/or expertise when it comes to designing images.

The Last Gladiators is a documentary about hockey, but it focuses mainly on former NHLer Chris Nilan. The film is honest, funny, realistic and heartbreaking. Nilan talks openly about his career, his drug and alcohol addiction as well as his upbringing with an abusive father. Check your local listings to see where it is playing in your area.

There was an advance screening in Edmonton a few weeks back and after I mediated a Q and A with Nilan and the audience he agreed to do an interview about the movie. He was just as candid in the interview as he was in the movie. I didn't omit any of his responses and the following interview is just a small sample of what you'll see in theatres.
