So the NHL Draft is almost here and I do not know about you but I am starting to feel like a kid on Christmas Eve. I cannot wait to wake up at 3 pm on Sunday morning (i.e. Saturday night should be fun) and open all my new presents. Actually I will just be watching grown men in suits call out names, most of which I will have never heard of, but maybe I’ll wrap my tv and computer just to get in the mood.
With all the potential for picks swapping this draft feels more like yankee swap than your traditional Christmas. With the second overall pick in the draft, the Florida Panthers have a wealth of options. Florida could trade up in an attempt to grab Nathan Mackinnon, they could stay put and potentially add Seth Jones or MacKinnon or they could trade down and select who-the-hell-knows. You can check out my take on what will happen, as well as my conspiracy theory regarding Colorado’s suspicion public announcements regarding Nathan MacKinnon, here.
If you don’t care about what I have to say, and really why should you, just skip all that bombastic baloney and share your opinion in the poll below. If you feel like you have something to get off your chest that cannot be communicated by clicking one answer on a silly poll, then feel free to let us know how you feel in the comments section.
As always, follow us on Twitter and like us on the ol’ social network for all the latest Florida Panther news and draft day hoopla.
