Welcome to the Nations liveblog! We'll be updating things here all night long as the action unfolds. Trades, picks, speculation and punditry will be the order of the day.
the draft is Christmas in June for most hockey fans. Especially the Nations collective since every single Nations club has a pick inside the top-10. Edmonton (3), Calgary (4), Vancouver (6), Toronto (8) and Winnipeg (9) will all come away with high-end prospects this evening. Unless a GM goes off board or trades the pick for some immediate help. Don't say it can't happen. We all know Dave Nonis is dying to flip Kadri and 8th so they can pick Nick Ritchie...

Ok, Bergeron 2.0 is a pretty unfair question to ask, but you can blame Jared McCann for that. His gifted offensive talents combined with the pride he takes in shutting the opposition down could make him a name that comes up in Selke talk in the future.
I was fortunate enough to talk to the projected mid-to-late first-rounder about his game, his development, and learning both ends of the ice. Warning: May also contain totally sweet highlight reel video.

Hey everyone! Steve "Dangle" Glynn here. I'll be in Philadelphia with Canucks Army overlord Dimitri Filipovic for this year's NHL Entry Draft! We'll be gathering lots of content, some team specific and some that everyone can enjoy, so I hope you like it! I'm not in Philly just yet but I wanted to get a head start with interviews of some of this year's draft prospects. Thanks for reading!
