The NHL Network coverage isn't very good, but if you have the tracker from NHL.com on the side, you can really make out what happens. It's not bad actually, especially considering the 2nd day was never covered until recent years.
Plus, Bob McKenzie is on today which is a bonus because of the wealth of information he provides. In past years, the 2nd day of the draft didn't feature any of the NHL on TSN big guys.
the coverage is ok but then again it's 2 thru 7, now this is the only break i will take from watching the draft but i wish they show some of the picks or at least have a little thingy that says this guy is drafted by this team. Oh well mainly hardcore hockey fans are watching this so there's not gonna be much budget
I know there's a limited budget, but they really need to get some graphics up on the screen that detail who was just picks, what picks are coming up, and defnitely some way to detail when trades happen and the compensation. You can always hear a trade being announced in the background and it would be nice to know what those deals are.
The radio coverage (at least on NHL's XM channel) was pretty poor too.
They're all like 'yak yak yak' about nothing in particular and 'they're picking so fast we can't keep up with telling you about it!'
When really, I'd rather just a live feed of the naming of the picks - and then cut off to a quick description of who the person was - their scouting rank, their position, where they were playing - that sort of thing.
Easier than just having them yammer off about the first round some more.
