Any self respecting hockey fan who doesn't at least TRY to go to this should be kicked repeatedly in the shins and buttocks.

Gotta say, I'm highly excited!

Never thought I'd have the chance to go the draft.

Okay, so here's the dumb question. Where do they sell tickets or how do you get tickets.

I would love to go to the draft......

Don't worry about how to get tickets. As soon as they choose the venue, the Kings will start hyping the **** out of it, and if you've even mis-dialed 888-KINGS-LA from a public phone, or accidentally dropped a piece of paper with your email on it at the urinal in Staples, they will find you, call you incessantly and stuff your inbox with information about every absurd ticketmaster charge you can pay to get them.

NHL Drafts are always open to the public at no charge.

Let's get a group of us together, get there in Kings jerseys and start randomly chanting "GO KINGS GO", "ANAHEIM SUCKS", "OSSSGOOOOD", "BULL ****, BULL ****, BULL ****", etc. and then for no rational reason whatsoever, we jump up and cheer as if Kopitar just scored a goal and talk about the pass, play and shot...

Wadda you think?

The NHL also chose Chaka Khan as their entertainment at their Awards Show.

This is a league that loves to think outside the box....with that you get the good and the bad.

I know a real nice place right off the 103rd Street exit on the Blueline. Can't be more than $10 an hour.

On a serious note, there are plenty of hotels downtown that should be cheaper than that Marriott. There is the Figueroa Hotel, Holiday Inn, Wilshire Grand, Millenium Biltmore, Westin Bonaventure, another Marriott up Fig, the Standard and the Ritz Milner.

If the Kings can't sell out Staples for an actual hockey game, I doubt they'll sell it out or reach max capacity for the draft.

I'm just sayin'... the Metro Lines stretch a loooong way in LA.

If you're coming from out of town you could stay somewhere in the Valley for a resonable rate , take the Orange to the Red to the Blue to STAPLES and it would cost you $3.75. Parking ALONE will probably cost $10.

If you live anywhere in the Southland there are park and ride spots all along the Metro Routes where parking is free and it's only a $1.25 or $2.50 ride to STAPLES.

I hope it is at Staples. The food and drink choices and prices at Nokia is more than painful. Not that Staples is great. The seats at Nokia are better.
They should combine this with a concert at Nokia and other events(street/roller hockey, carnival, hockey clinics). That way once the Ducks pick their fans can hang out in the parking lot until the Kings pick.

I'm gonna go just to see the looks on the Toronto's figure heads when Boston selects in the top 3 with their pick. (and then again in the top 10 for bostons first round.)

Parking will only cost you $10 if you park a country mile away

This might just be the event that teaches me how to use LA's public transport. I barely realized we had it

I never used public transportation until I moved to a spot that's close to the subway. Now I can get to Staples Center in under 20 minutes during rush hour for $3.00. It's definitely worth it. If there's a big event happening at or around Staples Center (ie, Miley Cyrus), you can be the surrounding lots will still be at least $20.
