    This has just been reported on sportscentre.

    BUT... all they are going to do is report the results it looks like.

    What you do is this.

    draw the balls behind closed doors.

    for the draft anouncment. post order but cover them.
    start by uncovering #30, then wait 30 seconds ( new drum roll ) bing ! #29 and so on until you get to the last three ( have your commercial) ok eveyone this is it. pull the last rope uncovering the last three teams ( bring up the NHL music ta da, tada , tada)followed by " we will we will rock you " and eveyone yells the NHL IS BACK.

    Maybe they'll do it like David Stern does it. I don't mind it that way actually.

    Bob Mckenzie mentioned that the show at 1 PST on Friday will be 30 minutes long.

    Pardon my naivete, but will this be shown live online as well?
     
  11. I bet this is exactly what they do. (minus the music) The NBA does it and it's good tv.

    It's only good TV because you can see the reactions of the team reps live. But in this presser you will only see Bettman's reaction.. :\
     
  13. They could have a rep from each team there as well.. they will all be at the meeting anyways.
     
  14. Sounds great! Maybe the NHL can get Ryan Seacrest to host and have Simon Cowell make rude comments about each team after it is uncovered. They can have Bo Bice and Carrie Underwood sing real cheesey songs and then have a bad tour after the fact where they re-enact the lottery in each NHL city later this summer!

    From what I can read on TSN is that the balls will be drawn live starting from #30.

    Someone is calling in sick. :dunno:

    We can only hope that ESPN will pick it up, but I'm not holding my breath.

    You didn't read this part then ;)

    TSN confirmed Tuesday that the NHL draft lottery in New York will be televised Friday. But like the NBA, only the results of the draw will be shown. The actual drawing will take place away from the cameras.

    Now hockey fans will get to see how it unfolds. The order of the draft will be unveiled, starting with the 30th pick and ending with the prized first.

    I can imagine ESPNews not having anything better to cover on a Friday afternoon.
