And the 2021 Entry Draft is just around the corner…
No need for a lot of words on this open thread. Sometime this morning, Seattle’s picks are locked in. Tonight, on ESPN’s SportsCenter, the schedule will be released for all teams. At 8 pm, also on ESPN, the expansin draft will be covered. Personally, I have high expectations for the ESPN crew.
And the drama! Will Ristolainen be moved to Winnipeg or Montreal as rumors started on twitter last night? Will we finangle ourselves in a trade with Seattle for an exposed player? Sam Reinhart? Jack Eichel? My oh my!! Dang, gotta wait until thursday @ 1pm EST for any trade news
Lots of good info in here, including Montreal’s interest in Rasmus Ristolainen. However: “the Habs have a few other defencemen on their shortlist slotted ahead of Ristolainen.” https://t.co/f46oxZFcOJ
