Well my friend and I were able to get to the draft in New Jersey. It was an amazing day walking around and seeing the prospects greet fans and sign autographs. We noticed that many people were going into special area that had security at the doorway. We weren't entirely sure we were able to get in with the general admission ticket so we did what any other 38yo and his older friend would do....sneak in when the guard was answering a question to someone else.

When we were inside pretty much everyone you could imagine was there. I literally bumped into Tie Domi and said "whoops sorry about that" then shook his hand. Claude Lemieux was there, Lindy Ruff, and pretty much every first/second round prospect.

When it came time to eat my friend and I got our food and found an opening at a standing counter. There were already people there but that was the only place we found. Two of the people there (An older man with white hair, and a very attractive older female) next to us. My friend looks over and says "So which one is yours" because we knew they had to be parents. The guy with a pretty thick accent says "Samuel Morin". We look at each other because we had read about him due to a fantasy league we are in that has junior rosters etc... My friend said "So where are you thinking he is going to get drafted?" His father said "We are pretty sure it will be around 15 or 16". I turned to his wife and said "What team do you want your boy to play for?" His mother didn't speak to much english so I stopped her and said "Any team in the NHL right?" and we shared a courtesy laugh because she wasn't sure what I was saying and I thought I was clever. My friend looks at his father and said "I have to be honest I see him getting drafted by the Flyers at 11"

So after that we just kind of chatted a bit. He asked us what we did for a living and found out that he owns a catering business. It was real nice.

So obviously my friend was right about the draft team and position. Once they saw us after the pick they came over with huge smiles and shook our hands. The wife brought me over and introduced me to Sam's sister and grandmother. It was such a great experience. I know they have no idea who we are anymore but still.

Once Sam came up after being interviewed by everyone after getting picked I met him at the top of the stairs and shook his hand.

Sorry this took so long to type out.

We're Here!!



After lurking minimally, I've decided to make the jump to the hfboards. Those who were part of the once mighty Wild Message Boards may or may not remember me. For those who forgot or need a refresher I'll cue you in.

I joined the Wild Message Boards in 2006, met a bunch of interesting people on there. Some have become friends, some were friends and now I discovered that maybe they're not my kind of people. My main passion was college hockey and more specifically Gopher Men's Hockey but as college hockey has got all messed up with the conference shuffling, I find myself being more of an NHL fan.

One of my biggest coups of my time on the Wild Message Board was being the "genious" behind the 2 versions of "Jackbag". I started the Jackbag profile after a poster referred to us as snobs to the casual fans. I figured if casual fan is what he wanted, I'll give him the guy we all see at the arena obsessed with being drunk and seeing fights. Jackbag's obsession with all things Derek Boogaard bordered on psychotic and his way with wooing the women on the message boards was previously unseen and has not been seen since, thankfully. Unfortunately a posted outed me as Jackbag and as I vowed, once Jackbag got outed, the gig was up. A decision made much easier with the eventual unfortunate passing of Derek Boogaard.

Anyways, Old Time Hockey insisted I jump on board, not sure how much I'll chime in, but......I'm here!.

Ive always been watching NHL as a neutral fan. Family in Minnesota finally gave me some sort of local connection to a team, and after a visit to the land of 10 000 lakes a couple of years ago Ive been following teams in Minnesota pretty close.

Best moment so far has to be when Wild signed Parise, my all time favorite player.
