A Review of Draft Weekend

Rich and Kyle were down in Montreal and wrote this review of the sites and sounds from this past weekend's draft.

Quote:
This past weekend, I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Entry Draft in Montreal. While I do not have anything to compare this to, seeing as I had never been to an Entry Draft prior to this weekend, I was pleasantly surprised by the experience.

First off, the City of Montreal was a tremendous choice by the NHL. Regardless of the teamís centennial hockey season, the city is hockey, hockey, hockey all the time. The streets were packed with people excited about the game of hockey near the end of June, so it made for an exciting weekend.



One thing that stood out to me was the amount of hockey people who came into town for the Entry Draft. People from the CHL, USHL, AHL, NHL, NCAA were all there in attendance. Some seemed to be there for a specific draft-related reason, others just seemed to be there for the camaraderie. Either way, you were hard-pressed to walk within three blocks of the Bell Centre and not see somebody involved in the game roaming around the streets of Montreal.

Having been left behind by the guys I was forced to watch via TV although I was pleasently surprised that Versus was carrying the TSN feed here in Michigan.
