It's Draft Night!

No time restrictions between picks interestingly enough

Troy Brouwer will supposedly be coming to the Caps in a trade tonight

Re: Washington Capitals 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

Glad the Jets name is being allowed back. There was some uncertainty if the new Winnepeg franchise would be legally allowed to use the Jets name since it was owned by the Phoenix Coyotes (original Jets moved to Phoenix)...this new franchise is the Atlanta Thrashers. However, the NHL took over the Coyotes, so the league now had control of the copyrights and name rights.

Good move by the league...much better than "promoting" the name of the Manitoba Moose from the AHL, which seemed to be the likely scenario without being allowed to be the Jets again.

Re: Washington Capitals 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

Holy crap. Joel Ward, Roman Hamrlik, Halpern, Varly for a 1st and 2nd, not to mention Troy Brouwer.

They're probably going to try to move Fehr, Schultz, Poti, and maybe Semin or Green.

NHL starting free agency at Noon, instead of Midnight like other sports, is brilliant

Apparently, Fatty is thinking of pairing Green and Hamrlik. Wise move. Green might actually look like a legit Norris canidate thanks to his potential "silent partner" doing all the little things right. After all, it worked for James Wisniewski and Dion Phaneuf.

Funny how it conincides with their acquisition of a "stud center" from the Flyers.

Question for you. Why is it ESPN ignores the NHL? You know the opening of SC? they show ever champion from the past year but no Bruins, kind of lame.
