Hockey Draft Time

Yes, ladies and gentlemen: It’s time for the NHL draft, as you can see at Hockey’s Future. This is when your hopes and dreams of acquiring superstars are born. Sometimes, they end shortly thereafter. This is the place where 18-year olds become the face of a multi-billion-dollar industry:

One of the things that make the NHL draft such a crapshoot is the fact the players are not often well known. Once in a while, we’ll hear about a player like Steven Stamkos or Alexander Ovechkin who are generational talents. On the other hand, we see players who turn into busts. Other times, we see the great majority of a draft turn into busts.

Anyway, the NHL draft is a happy time. That is, unless you have a terrible general manager. You see trades, players move and everyone’s generally happy. Except the football fans who believe a drafted player should come into the league and help immediately. Too funny, like a child you never heard of is going to be your team’s savior in a league full of mature adult men.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
