Howdy, folks. The 2023 NHL Entry Draft is getting going, and since you rascals already crossed the 400-comment threshold on this morning’s late-posted bits, I figured it would be good to have a separate thread.
Connor Bedard is going no. 1 overall to the Chicago Blackhawks. After that, it’s all a mystery, including teams moving up and down the draft.
The New York Islanders, one would think, will be very quiet tonight. They don’t have their first-round pick—the Detroit Red Wings do—but you never know. Lou Lamoriello could have a trick up his sleeve. Or you could sit and listen to John Buccigross for two and a half hours without anything to show for it. The choice is yours.
Anyway, feel free to chat, discuss, and vent below.
