It starts at 5PM to make you waste money on Coors Light and overpriced hot dogs.

Yep, I won 2 tickets as well.

look here: http://canadiens.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=80666

A live Q&A with Louis Leblanc and David Desharnais hosted by Michel Lacroix
Autographs with Habs alumni Stephane Richer and Chris Nilan
Games, contests, music, and Youppi!
Live broadcast of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft from Pittsburgh on giant screens
And much more!

The reason is probably because of those festivities, and whatnot.

I wanna watch the TSN feed though... I'm sure they will put RDS feed on big screen, eh?

It's not the end of the world, as I can just re-watch it on tsn website later..

A friendly message for people who prepare to watch for the first time the draft coverage on TV, after a year of speculating about picks it should be a super exciting night right?

Wrong.

The draft coverage sucks ass. Always, all the time. It is either slow as hell (first, second round) and you get bored really fast by the pundits who don't know jack about any of the players anyway and are just filling time, or it's almost too fast (the remaing rounds) and you don't know the vast majority of the names mentionned so any reaction is tentative at best.

The only people who really enjoy the draft are those who follow junior a lot and are really crazy about knowing prospects. This is not the case of the vast majority of the board.

So if it's between the draft and, say, your prom (as I've seen someone asking once), pick the prom. It's an hyped event, and you won't miss anything. Trust me. You can always wait for the complete results by Saturday night, and then you'll have a year to talk about these players.

I also won two tickets. May not use them -- I'm waiting for my friend to decide whether he wants to spend his birthday night-out at the Draft Party or elsewhere.

I'll give them away here if I don't end up going.

Wouldn't it be Molson ?

I'd totally go to Jee and Seb's for the draft without them knowing I'm there.

If all you have is picture, then it's fine. If you have audio, it's absolutely dreadful to hear the morons at RDS talk about prospects they really have no clue about. You're average HFboarder knows more than them about these prospects.
