    Yep, I've seen ads on OLN for it. June 24th at 6PM EST. It's possible they could be taking TSN's feed.

    Just wondering, but when did the draft get switched to an evening event? I find it kind of strange.

    this year...not sure the reason. maybe they think more people will watch if its during primetime but saturday night people go out. i like the noon start much better cause it makes it like a day long event if the local team has a draft party

    Being on the west coast, I like it better at this time slot. It's easier to get together and watch the draft with friends.
    It's not easy to find a place that is open that early in the morning

    I heard it got pushed to that time slot because there are World Cup games during the afternoon so they pushed the draft back to the evening.

    What is the time limit for each pick so we can get an estimate of how many picks will actually be televised in 3 hours?

    I would assume its only the first round, so if there is 180 minutes and 30 picks, I assume each team will get 6 minutes to pick a players. I am just assuming and probably wrong but this is what I think.

    I don't mind the 6pm eastern start.It beats staying indoors during a beautiful sunny day.You have plenty of time to go out when the draft ends

    I believe it's a later start because the draft is in Vancouver (6 PM EST = 3 PM PST).

    Well the one Kings draft party up at Hollywood and Highland was pretty cool. Especially when you had a close up seat of the buffet table and could watch Jaroslav Modry put back half eaten hot dogs.

    I used one of the free frisbees they were giving away for autographs. Frolov is the only one who's still with the organization. I've got Cechmanek, Kip Brennan, Brad Norton, Brad Chartrand, Modry, and Frolov's autographs on one.

    You're probably right about the number of rounds, but wrong about the amount of time they get to pick. You have to allow time for pregame/postgame analysis and commercials. I don't know how long they will get per pick, but I doubt it's more than 5 minutes. Someone will know, and post it eventually.

    Isn't this schedule typical of past US TV coverage where it was a three hour show which basically meant first round coverage? As for the TSN feed, that would make sense. Didn't OLN also use the TSN feed for the Crosby draft lottery?

    During the last draft MSG had simultaneous coverage of the draft with their own broadcast team. Anybody know if MSG or any other NHL team's media partner will be doing such a simulcast this year?

    Yeah its probably 5 minutes, this way there is time for pre-game and post-game like you said.

    But commericals and analysis goes on while teams are on the clock, they dont just show the team that is on the clock talking.

    Is it just the first round like it was on ESPN or will there be more rounds televised? If so, how many more?

    OLN didn't broadcast the draft. They got the TV contract after the draft. The draft was split up among regional sports networks. In Tampa area it was on CSS and they cut away midway through the first round.

    I would think it is only the first round shown on OLN this year.

    TSN only covers the first round. However, on NHL Network, there was some analysis of the second round.
