Video: PHT Extra — as draft draws near, trade market heats up

Jun 25, 2014, 12:50 PM EDT

Brough and I talk about the 2014 NHL Entry Draft — one that most are looking forward to not because of the prospects, but rather the idea of having all 30 GMs on hand for what Calgary’s Brad Treliving predicted would be “as volatile of a draft week as we’ve seen in recent memory.”

    I think this is going to be one heck of a draft day, and most definitely will give us that feeling that we have not really all experienced in recent times with the trade deadline.

    We know Kesler is going to be moved, Havlat has a ton of potential to be moved as well. The Evander Kane rumor is news to me, though that would be a solid shake up.

    Lets also not forget guys like Brian Campbell could be shopped, and also (though not too happy about it) Patrick Sharp, Leddy, Oduya.

    A lot of names being tossed into the rumor mill. Things are going to happen.

    Throw the Flyers in there with Hextall trying to clean up the salary cap/roster mess that was created by Holmgren and you have additional fuel to the fire.

    I will be contrarian. Every trade deadline day and draft day, we hype ourselves into thinking there will be amazing action. And I can’t remember the last time there really was.

    Next years draft will be huge, as there is a kid named Conor McDavid, who is a combination of McKinnion and Crosby and he is sooooooooooooooooooooo good, as I pay for canadian tv for junior hockey and he is great… just needs experience in the NHl
    Who ever gets the first pick in next years draft will be so lucky as to get him, in a trade would probably cost you half of your team. all the best players
    This years draft is ok, but there is really no outstanding player but it will be interesting to see what happens in trades etc… cant wait….
    follow this McDavid kid on the net and watch him
