Yeah Dreger jumps the gun sometimes but in this day and age where the pressure is on each network to be the first to break the story he does do his best. I believe what he has to say more than any of the other hockey journos around.

Ekblad is first, and no Leafs trade - surprise surprise.

Thank god. Glad Florida wasn't the fool with the 1 OA for the third time in roughly decade.

Well, the Leaes ended up taking William Nylander, a centre from Sweden. Can't say I've ever heard of the guy but it's not like I've been paying close attention to prospects. I am glad they went and got a centre though at least.

EDIT: I am surprised that Ehlers hasn't been picked yet, I figured top 10 for sure, although I'm just refreshing the TSN page since I'm at work so it's possible that he's been picked and the page just hasn't been updated

William Nylander is Michael Nylander's son. He's a stud player. Great pick. Surprised Ehlers fell too though. I blame Vancouver.

Looking like there will be zero goalies taken in the first round, I wonder when the last time that happened was?

It happens pretty frequently. There's a chance Florida strikes first in net though, given their lack of net minder depth.

File this post under "shit happens".

It's okay. It's not like the first goalie chosen last year was a Halifax player. Oh...wait.

And the first goalie chosen in 2014, 34th overall in the second round, was Mason Macdonald from...Halifax.

This post is coming from inside the house.

The only possible explanation is "we want to suck but we also need cap hit to reach the floor."


In other news, rumor has it the Flyers will trade Vincent Lecavalier to Florida in exchange for Scottie Upshall on Wednesday, when Vinny gets his signing bonus from Philly.

That works for me since he's got one year left on his deal. We badly need to get rid of that contract, as well as about half of our defense contracts.

Florida definitely wont like that contract when it comes time to re-sign their youngsters down the line, but it's a swell move for a win now team that needs to clear up room at wing. If only it were Kopecky instead of Upshall... although I'm happy with either of them gone.
