    They should televise it, since TSN uses their feed, and I'm guessing live :dunno:

    Wow three hours :)

    I hope I get to see the Sharks pick at 28th....Last year they cut it before the Sens picked I think...I believe we saw the Ducks pick Perry...Anywho... Wasn't last year just an hour? Or am I lost....Great to see 3 hour coverage.

    Usually, they will show all of the first round, and if time permits, some of the second round. Because first round are always really slow, that's why they go with a 3 hours schedule.

    There was also the one year when Darryl Kile died and we missed half the draft because of that coverage. I think it was 2002 because HF was in a frenzy because Americans missed most of the middle part of that coverage and a lot at the end.


    I remember a thread starting like this after the Sharks made their pick:

    "who the hell is mike morris"

    That was 2002 because I missed Jonas Johannus' selection for the Avs.

    Last year someone kept forcing teams to take time outs with late trade calls which made the first round run long.

    Usualy it's some preshow, and dive right in. I bet they'll tell Wash and Pittsburgh not to screw around.

    I wish the NHL Draft got as much air time and exposure as the NFL Draft

    Thats because most of the players drafted, fans could watch them all year play ncaa football. With hockey, you have 18 year olds from countries and leagues all over the world that no one outside of scouts, the occasional video clip/tape, and the international tourneys.

    Everyone selected in the nfl draft, a fan most likely would have heard of before. During/After the third round of the nhl draft, you have no clue of some of the guys unless you vastly follow the prospects(and i mean vastly).

    As fashionable as it is to bash our sport for being badly managed, bad on tv, and never getting exposure, keep in mind baseball just had its draft in the middle of the season and didn't televise it. They also don't allow trading of picks before they are taken.

    I feel a little tinge of pride when I think of that.

    The NFL has a much larger market in the US and chances are you've heard of the guy your team is taking in the first round.

    I've been a hockey fan all my life but until 2000 I never really knew any of the prospects. Alright we got Konstantin Koltsov! Who the **** is that? HE HAD ONE POINT?!

    And so forth...

    I knew of every player the Steelers picked in the NFL draft and had watched quite a few of them, the NHL draft? Even though hockey is my first sport I'll probably know of half of our picks and I've never seen any of them play...

    Plus these guys jump from the NCAA right into the NFL, no waiting time. Alot of these guys will even be starting for their repsective clubs this season...the NHL...maybe a couple.

    The fact that it's televised...I'll take it.

    And the MLB joke is just a disgrace, the fact that trades aren't allowed is horrible, San Diego wasted the first overall pick on a guy who should have gone around 15th because they were worried they couldn't sign the best player in the draft, who ended up falling all the way to 12th.

    I remember seeing Ottawa pick Eaves but we just missed St Louis take Shawn Belle.


    It was definitely more than an hour last year but for some reason I have it stuck in my mind that it was just two instead of three. Then I again I may be lost.

    Hopefully there will be a decent amount of Caps fans there.

    Usually we see around 27 picks before they switch off. When Kile died in 2002, they cut during analysis of Martin Vagner.

    Uh, has anyone seen the NHL's ratings in the U.S.? I hate to say it, but I'm glad we're getting 3 hours. Sometimes I think we HF'ers make up about 1/2 the viewing audience.

    I know the Penguins picked it up on the radio, pretty useful.

    NHL.com will have the fastest results I believe. Generally speaking with all drafts, after the first 35 picks, I'd advise to go do something for a couple hours, then come back and see who got picked.

    There's actually no good place for up to the minute picks. NHL.com is pretty slow, and so is ESPN. And TSN's lucky to have the picks updated by the end of the day. I don't understand why they can't be faster.
