It says that because RDS and TSN are official broadcaster of the draft, they know the picks before the actual selection. Do you guys know if it's because the selection is made by computer before going to the podium?

Anyways, if you like watching the draft, when the Habs pick, turn the channel on TSN and don't check any Twitts...it will be safer if you want to live the moment...
Well personnally, I prefer to check it on RDS for one good reason. Even though they know, they usually don't care 'cause they don't know the guys. Surely if Quebecers are involve it's another story, if not, they won't bother with it compared to TSN who, last year, seemed to know EVERY SINGLE PICK and announced it before the pick was actually made either by an educated guess or....now we know better.
