The Fun Returns At The NHL Draft

from Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News,

Root for chaos.

That's going to be the underlying approach this corner is going to take when the NHL Draft hits Montreal this week. For the first time since we gathered in Vancouver in 2019, all the NHL club officials, draftees and the media from across North America will be in one place and the floor of the Bell Centre will become the center of the hockey world for two days.

That will lead to plenty of talking in the restaurants and watering holes of the city, and lots of mighty interesting conversation on the floor prior to the first round Thursday night.

"I don't know if it's because the pandemic, but I think in the last month, there's not a person in the hockey world that I haven't run into that didn't say, 'I'll see you in Montreal,'" Buffalo Sabres general manager Kevyn Adams said. "So I don't know if they're going to have enough hotel rooms in Montreal to fit everybody. But I think it's going to be a lot of fun."
