Time for a little Draft Night Recap:
|Quoting Srbmod (Reply 57):|
The first round of the Draft is in a matter of hours, so who's going to be the #1 Pick, Turris or Kane? Or will Cherepanov sneak in to join Kovalchuk and Ovechkin as Russian #1 overall draft picks?
Patrick Kane went #1 to the Blackhawks
Kyle Turris went #3 to the Coyotes
Alexei Cherepanov fell all the way down to #17 to the Rangers (The lack of a transfer agreement between the NHL and the RIHF is why.)
Here's the full list:
The Preds shipped Vokoun to Florida for three draft picks.
Several teams also unveiled new jerseys last night. I have to say that so far, the ones I've seen of this new style jersey aren't that bad. If you didn't get a chance to see them, here's some of them:
Some other images (some confirmed, others rumored/leaked) of other teams' new jerseys can be found here:
Hopefully the rest of the teams won't take too long to introduce their revamped jerseys. No 3rd jerseys this season, but they're supposedly going to come back for the 08-09 season. This will be the first "new" New Jersey Devils jersey in 15 years, but knowing the Devils, it'll probably be so much like the current current one nobody will even notice......
Well on the Thrashers' front, they re-signed McCarthy and Larsen. It's also expect that we will re-sign Exelby and we could also have Kozlov under contract by then as well. Sutton is out, as his agent is asking for way more than he's worth (Wants a 4 year, S16 million deal.).
There's also rumors that the deal to sell the Preds to Balsillie may be dead.
