Retweeted by TG, covers the Panthers for the Sun Sentinel in Florida.

You figure the Flyers will end up overpaying. Desperate to make a splash at home.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

They need to clear some salary as well. Already over the cap but that's counting Pronger on that number as well.

With Berube's system, you can see why their focus would be getting Ekblad. Their defensive game has improved, seems like they want to play more carefully like the Devils. Beating the Penguins in a first or second round with physicality and offense shouldn't be their ceiling.

 

Hope they overpay too much, Hextall's first move was pretty bad.

Canucks and Panthers still talking. Van offer for 1st pick believed to be 6th, 24th and last years 1st rnd pick, Hunter Shinkaruk. #TSN

IMO Florida would be stupid to turn that down


You do that on a second if you're Florida.

Eh. Florida needs impact level quality not quantity. Tallon might make that move though.

Lots of unknowns. Lots of spread after the first few picks. Could see some surprises.

Anyone know if they are staying with NBCSN for the whole first round or are they moving it around for some reason.

Later rounds don't happen until tomorrow.  I believe NHL Network is covering tomorrow, but it's a much more lower key thing.

 

We're talking in the Chat room if anyone's interested.

 

Hah, just saw Josh Harris's kid wandering around

Right move by Florida. They've got a ton of defensemen but none as high caliber as Ekblad.

I forgot Pierre... It should be fun listening to him tell us how every prospect will be a HOF'er all night.
