    Just wondering if everyone could post links to articles from each teams' local paper about speculation on the 2004 draft, perhaps along with a brief line about the articles content.

    Things like draft profiles, articles on who a team might like, etc. It would be a great resource if we could get together and have that kind of info readily available as the draft approaches.

    Also, could the mods sticky this thread if it catches on, thanks.

    I haven't seen much in the local papers,but there are a few articles written by F. Rizzo lll on the Isles website.Get past the 1st pom pom waving paragraph on the article about defensemen and it's pretty good article.

    Last year, two or three days before the draft, two articles about Montreal being very interested in Kastsitsyn with what... the 10 overall pick?

    So I expect a few articles in LaPresse (www.cyberpresse.ca) to be written this thursday or friday.

    from Brownlee's article..."Unlike reporters, however, the Oilers have to get it right the first time when they step to the microphone in Raleigh, South Carolina, June 26."


    South Carolina? That's gonna have to be one powerful microphone! :amazed:

    No prob.

    For those who haven't already seen, the Pens official site has profiles of some prospects.

    Two More Oilers draft articles, via the EDM Sun:

    this article about who EDM might like at 14, with a tidbit about NYR at #6:

    http://www.canoe.ca/NewsStand/EdmontonSun/Sports/2004/06/23/510397.html

    next article about how EDM's thoght process might change with 2 firsts instead of one (thouh I think there's a factual mistake in the article, as they list EDM also with 2 seconds, one of which is NYR propoerty via the Nedved trade as far as I've hear):

    If you have missed it, on Boston Bruins.com there is a great 5 part article on the draft, of course with a Bruins flavour, but it is a good read.
