It’s the eve of the NHL Draft and hockey bloggers from across the country are converging on Los Angeles to blog about hockey… and complain about LA traffic on Twitter. I’ll be attending the NHL Draft tomorrow as a nerd fan hockey blogger while James O’Brien from NBC’s Pro Hockey Talk will be attending as a full-fledged member of the Press… but that doesn’t make him any less of a nerd hockey blogger. So if you are at the Draft tomorrow be sure to look out for these two guys.


The Royal Half and Cycle Like the Sedins are hitting the NHL Draft!

James will have full access to a glorious press box and gourmet finger foods while I’ll probably have to watch the draft from the bowels of Staples Center. I’ll be throwing photos and commentary up on Twitter throughout the day… so you can find me there @theroyalhalf. But the real question for the Draft tomorrow is… which member the of Philadelphia Flyers will the Kings be trading for to help the Flyer out with their salary cap situation?
