    something is going down with the flyers if ed snider is with the team today…..

    Interesting story on the Toronto Star website:
    The title rather hints at the subject. To me the fun part of the draft is looking back a few years later and seeing how things went. An example is the 1984 draft, when Mario Lemieux seemed like a no-brainer to be picked first. He was, and he obviously worked out better than any No. 1 pick ever. As others were picked after him, however, each team had their chance to snag Patrick Roy, Brett Hull and Luc Robitaille, but they were taken long after Dave Pasin and Trevor Stienburg. Alas. Hindsight.

      These guys are little league here, they constant fail at names and nationalities. They can’t even be bothered covering the entire 1st round for something that only happens once a year.

    You know the NHL is BS when they can’t even see the draft on TV.
    The foreign players in the NHL picked in the draft their own country can’t even see the draft. Like I said the NHL draft is crap.

      You can’t watch the draft? You must be in the US. We had an hour-long pre-draft show, and now the whole draft on TSN.

    • dropthepuckeh - Jun 30, 2013 at 3:33 PM

      NBCSN. It’s 865 in Boston….

    • valarmorghuliss - Jun 30, 2013 at 6:11 PM

    Nashville made out with Jones at fourth

  8. hines86for6 - Jun 30, 2013 at 3:32 PM

    The consensus best player in the draft, Jones, gets to learn from the best Defenseman in the league and play in front of a top 3 goalie? Good luck ever scoring on the Preds.

  9. prettytoney1 - Jun 30, 2013 at 3:38 PM

    Not a preds fan but with Weber and Jones on the blue line wow… scary good

  10. jovocop2112 - Jun 30, 2013 at 3:44 PM

    surprised Feaster didnt trade his first pick for a pot roast sandwich

  11. jimw81 - Jun 30, 2013 at 4:33 PM

    • laxman1944 - Jun 30, 2013 at 5:13 PM

  14. valarmorghuliss - Jun 30, 2013 at 5:05 PM

    Covering picks beyond the top 10 is hard for casual hockey fans huh?
    LOL @ you guys not posting a little write up each pick of the 1st round

  15. bdnnbd - Jun 30, 2013 at 10:55 PM

    Would be nice if, when I immediately came to this site for live draft analysis, there were any whatsoever.

  16. bdnnbd - Jul 1, 2013 at 1:57 PM

    Still no draft analysis. Am I missing something here?
