The NHL Entry Draft takes place Friday and Saturday, and for the past couple of years I've live-blogged it (though last year's blog was interrupted by a thunderstorm that took out my DirecTV signal).
This year, however, the Draft takes place at our very own Xcel Energy Center, which means I'll be up there working the next two days. I've been told I'll be working at the Media stage on the main floor, so if you're watching (6 p.m. Central time on Versus Friday, 10 a.m. Saturday on NHL Network) you just might see me.
Important weekend for the Wild. Rumors abound that Brent Burns may be traded, and if you're going to trade someone with that kind of talent, you better get something pretty strong in return.
