Torgy and the Common Man try to speak on hockey for five straight minutes without embrassing themselves.

Not much really. I just listened to the replay on 1460.

Say no worries about drafting Filatov. Said he would come to Columbus to work out over the summer and is committed the playing in the NHL. Doesn't believe he would slide in the draft because of the transfer agreement.

Is leaning towards keeping the #6 pick at this time. He has made some called and received some calls but nothing at this point warrants moving the pick. Expects action to pick up all the way until it is time for us to pick.

Can't comment on Malone because he is under contract w/ Pittsburgh until June 30.

That's about all I remember.

What is this week like for you?
SH: we're still working on it...things change...we'll meet a couple more prospects at the draft

do you do mock drafts?
SH: we certainly have a good guess about who's going to go...still some question marks there after the top 3 picks...we believe we are going to get a really good player at 6

everyone saying big defensive heavy draft?
SH: we're going to get action on the pick right up until the pick...even if Filatov the Russian is there we will still likeley get a call...he said if he gets drafted by Columbus he'll be here this summer & I think he'll get picked in top 7-8

draft will be on 1460 the fan
SH: have had some calls this week & making some calls too...good amount of discussion last week & that will progress into this week

more relaxed this year?
SH: easier because I'm more familiar with the org...this year there seems to be the potential for more activity in terms of draft picks

Patrick Marleau?...other big name player names come up?
SH: no not yet...expecting us to make that pick at #6...I wouldn't be surprised if we got some intriguing calls right at the time of that pick

Ryan Malone?
SH: can't comment...he's under contract with Pittsburgh until June 30th & it wouldn't be appropriate for me to say anything about that

is draft important, so that when free agency starts other free agents look & say CBJ are making moves...a perception thing?...do you feel like you need to make a move on draft day?
SH: that would help, but it's not something I'm going to do at all costs...we believe we have a good program here...if we have to make our selections without making a trade at the draft...good time to improve your team & one time during season when people are willing to talk about trade...if we could fill a hole or 2 that we have moving into free agency that would help our team

latest on Pascal?
SH: talked late last week & will talk again in Ottawa...making progress...takes time & optimistic get something done in near future

those sound alikes are trouble. That Sergei Federov is the worse thing to hit our way since Katrina, Sergei Fedorov however, is a lock for the hall of fame.

I was really wanting to listen to this interview when I heard he was going to be on, I was work and couldn't... Doesn't seem like I missed much though...

Sometimes its a bit of a let down to have a GM that actually plays things very close to the vest... We had one that loved to talk for a while...

Howson's a pretty smart fellow, and he actually has a blue print for the future of our franchise, I'm pretty sure he'll do us well

I finally had a chance to listen to his brief interview today....

The biggest thing I took from it was that I got the impression that he wouldn't trade the 6th for Marleau. While he didn't phrase it that way when asked if any other names had surfaced for the #6 pick besides Marleau he said "No" and added that at this point they are keeping this pick since nothing has come up to warrant trading it.

I'm quite certain it's going to take something special for the CBJ to move the pick especially if there is a surprise like Boedker or Schenn taken prior to the #6 giving us more options.

You guys shouldn't trade the 6 pick for Marleau. Really.
