Time for a little break from baseball to talk hockey. The draft gets under way in less than an half hour and it could be an exciting weekend for all the hockey fans out there. I know I have been looking forward to tonight since the Stanley Cup Finals ended earlier this month.
All sort of rumors flying around about the Oilers and possible moves they may make this weekend as far as trades go and perhaps acquiring another pick or two. Should be a fun weekend. Oilers pick 22 overall in the 1st round, after that they don't pick again until the 4th round. The Avalanche don't pick until the 2nd round.
Moves around the league so far today:
Nashville trades G Chris Mason to St. Louis for a 4th round pick
St. Louis trades F Jamal Meyers to Toronto for 3rd round pick
Ray Emery waived by Ottawa Senators
Dan Cloutier waived by the Los Angeles Kings
more to come...
