NHL Draft @ Montreal

It is the moment we have all been looking forward to, since around January

The NHL Draft is upon us:

Will DW move the #4 pick?

How many trades will the Thrashers make today?

Do we trade one of our goaltenders today?

All these questions and more, should be answered in due time.


A reporting note: Due to the AJC not sending someone to cover the draft, I think the three main breaking news sources you have to chose from for the Thrashers will be The Blueland Blog on the official site, Craig Custance at TSN.com, and our very own Falconer who is in Montreal reporting from his birdwatchersanonymous.com blog.

Custance got the bump to TSN? Where was I?

It occured to me that the Alfred E. Neuman pic could be a slightly older Opie after a hard night out back of the barn of smoking cigarettes and sipping Mayberry moonshine...probably Helen's 14 yr old niece was around, too.

Sorry, just killing time. Thanks for the info tips.

are we not high on Evander Kane ? I heard all these rumors of us trading the 4th o pick .

If we do trade the pick we better be getting a heck of a deal .

i wouldnt mind trading the 4th to Toronto for a 7th plus more picks. or what about possible for the 7th + next years 1st?

i know we want help now but that can be a pretty high pick

When he left the AJC, he ended up at The Sporting News (Not the Canadian sports network with the same initials.).

Over on the blueland blog, there is a vid of DW talking about being more likely to keep the 4th and move the 34th pick

Sweet! Good to know one our own will be there. Looking forward to reading Falconer's blog.
On Saturday most likely. I'll be on the sauce tonight starting right around draft time, my reading comprehension skills fall off a cliff pretty quickly once the brew starts flowing.

Here's hoping Shaemus is right. Keep the 4th pick, look to trade #34 or #45 plus somebody we have now to get the top-6 forward or shut down D that we really need.

Cheers!

Lol . I have a friend with the last name Hainsey . His girlfriend's last name is Kane . Now when we draft Evander , i can get them to become Thrashers fans .


I'm so pumped up for tonight , honestly . Do not disapoint us Donald . I'm heading to my friends house now to watch it . I'll either be back here later on tonight extremely happy , or extremely pissed .

Keys to tonights draft -
-Draft Evander Kane 4th overall . IF DW can get a decent offer for that pick , then maybe , maybe deal it .

-Do not trade Lehtonen . Please . We have no one to replace him .

-Do not do anything stupid i.e. trying to trade up in the draft or trading Colby Armstrong . I cant see us getting something great in return and without getting something great back then it would be stupid .


Lets win !

TSN, the Canadian one, is most likely to have the top breaking news.

tsn.ca/nhl

They seem to break most big NHL stories, and as a rightsholder at this draft, that should continue.

With apologizes to Hunter S. Thompson:

In some circles the NHL Draft is a far, far better thing than the Super Bowl, the Kentucky Derby and the Lower Oakland Roller Derby Finals all rolled into one.
I'm actually more excited about the NHL Draft than I was the Stanley Cup Finals. The months of speculating, rumor mongering, and waiting with baited breath are about to be over.

I hope we keep the pick. It look like we can get a legit talent in Kane. There is no need to pass him up.

Congrats Atlanta, you just might have walked away with the best player to come out of this draft in 5 years.

Evander Kane if he reaches his potential is a fast and more skilled version of Iginla who is just as tough. Kid's built like a MMA fighter.

Franchise player.

he will be better than Duschene book it!
