Rumors Overshadow the Big Day

From Tim Wharnsby at the Globe & Mail,

The National Hockey League general managers who sit on their thumbs in the next day or so may wind up as the big off-season losers.
With the Stanley Cup having been won by the Anaheim Ducks only 16 days ago, there is a race going on among the 30 general managers to improve their teams. There was so much chatter and gossip buzzing around that the usual debate on which young talent would be drafted when and where took a back seat on the eve of the 2007 NHL entry draft.
“We’re in a hurry, aren’t we?” one general manager said. “I got in here late [Wednesday] afternoon and there already was a tremendous buzz, and I think we all expect a lot of movement here.”

continued… (*looks at the swirl of rumors yesterday)
