OT: NHL Draft -- updated info

From the Blue Jackets' web site:

Great idea....

I'm sure there will be millions of casual fans and non-fans who will tune in on a Friday night in June to see the draft and become rabid fans.

And with the first round on Friday night, a lot of real fans who might have gone to the draft won't be able to make it for Friday night.

Absolutely brilliant.

God, that is dumb.

I guess they didn't want to risk going head-to-head with the NASCAR Busch Series on Saturday and lose viewers. Not that I can get the damn Versus Channel anyway.

Stupid NHL.

Does this even matter? The people that would watch the draft anyway will still watch it and the people who wouldn't, won't.

Yeah but I lose a Friday night. I guess Saturday night can suffice.


I think I'm taking a vacation that week anyways.

I will most likely be toiling away an afternoon interning in L.A. until about 6 or 7 p.m. PST then, so I will miss the first two hours of the draft. Excellent. The Flyers will pick first or second and I will find out what happened online.

If you were planning on being able to wake up by 10am on Saturday to watch the first round then it probably wouldn't be much of a Friday night anyway.

next they will say that the time of the event will be determined by lottery.
