They cancelled the draft today. I'm really bummed. Now there's not even a chance for new guys to suit up for our minor league affiliates.. no new guys to watch and speculate about in juniors.

I don't know. On the one hand it sucks for those guys who have been working towards getting drafted this year. On the other hand, I tend to favor raising the draft age to 19, and this might be the perfect opportunity to do it. Just push this year's draft to next year; the '06 class to '07 etc. (The draft order is of course a whole other story).

It's going to be a long summer though. I may have to learn to like baseball.

It will be interesting to see where the AHL stacks up in all of this. For example, shouldn't Crosby be able to sign with the highest bidding AHL team? He'll be of age no NHL team will have rights to him... Let the speculation begin.

Just do what I do. Reminesce over past NHL seasons and learn to like the AND1 MIXTAPE TOUR! Sure, the guy with the mic at all the games is annoying as anything and the fundamentals are more absent than Cups for the Blackhawks; but it's not baseball!

Oh, how I wish a CBA were to be signed soon.

On a side note: I don't mind seeing the draft age being raised to 19 and having a weighted lottery for the draft order. Though, I want to have a draft, which would mean a new CBA, and that would mean a new NHL season soon.
