Who thinks the draft....

Who thinks the draft is going to be pretty uneventful tomorrow? All this talk about trades and surprise picks...I think its gonna be rather straight forward and not surprising.

I don't care, I always love watching the draft.

But I'm praying for a big trade.

I agree. I think the biggest trade will be the Leafs trading down a spot or two.

I hope I'm wrong...

I'll be watching, and I expect to see at least one big name moved.

Could be uneventful...

But Trevor Timmins from the Habs says that there could be a lot of movement because of the way the draft is tiered.

Top 3,
Then like next 7 or 8
Then about 20 to 30 who are close.

Which could lead to a number of trades...even if they just involve picks.

Anything that really benefits my team the most comes first, a bunch of trades and interesting picks are just the icing on the cake.

I think we will see a lot of movement between picks and possibly some big name players...so we shall see!

Doubt it. The draft is one of the 3 big times during the year when NHL teams make a lot of deals. The other two are right after training camp when teams need to fill holes, replace injured players, and the trade deadline.

Part of the reason for the high number of deals at the draft is the GM's all in close proximity and communicating for the draft and for trades. But also because teams have cap room again if they've got any medium to big salaries leaving via UFA. Also GM's may want to shore up certain areas heading into the free agency period.

In the salary capped NHL, the NHL Draft is a real deal making time and history proves it.
