No real surprises in round 1 of the draft tonight, other than maybe Marco Rossi not going a little sooner.

I'm pretty excited to add Alexander Holtz. Probably the best pure sniper in the draft, and the Devils desperately need shooters to play with Hughes and Hischier. I like his comparable to Filip Forsberg. 

The state of hockey welcomes him!

He’s who I wanted the most for the Devils. The Wild got themselves a future star. Maybe one day some of these old school GM’s will stop being afraid to draft short players.

People can be rigid. The one that annoys me, and you'll agree I think considering Burrow, is hand size. You need to measure a QB's hand strength

Thought Gaudreau dispelled the notion that you have to be super tall and strong to be good at the NHL level.

Was about to bring up the obligatory Theo Fleury, but he was prolly juiced as hell.

And Brad Marchand, and Brayden Point, and Alex DeBrincat...

It’s not the 70’s anymore. These small skilled guys have been flourishing for year under the new rules.

Was shocked when I heard this morning. A huge loss in the game. I'd put his voice up against any play by play guy in any sport as the best. Wish him well.

I don't hate these. I rather like the Avs version, and might actually buy one to add my Sakic collection.

So Devils, and Islanders essentially just get their 80's unis back?  I really like the Kings 90's logo with the purple and gold.  And the old school Jets with the different colours.

Until the Oilers main jersey goes back to being the awesome blue with orange and white, every other Oiler jersey needs to be mocked.

The Devils never wore green as their main color, they were red with green as the secondary color. These new ones are actually true to the theme of “reverse retro”.

So Corey Crawford has taken an indefinite leave of absence from the Devils TC. Hope everything is ok with him. It’s all speculation at this point, but it kind of sounds like he’s contemplating retirement.

This Lake Tahoe game between the Avs and Golden Knights looks absolutely gorgeous. I think the outdoor games lost their novelty years ago, but this is wow...

FFS the Sabres blew a 3-0 lead in the 3rd to lose their 18th in a row. 

Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
