This is just a quick post so I can keep the ball rolling this week. Genuinely, I'm interested in any questions that you the fans would like to have asked up at the Draft. Whether it's to the #1 overall pick or Islanders Management, we'll do our best to ask as many of your questions as possible. Keep 'em clean and throw them in the Comment Section at the bottom of the post.
Also, don't forget that I'll be providing a Live Blog (see the right side of the page and enter your e-mail address for a reminder) starting at 5:30 on Friday afternoon and running to the end of the 1st round.
I'll also be providing a Live Blog for the following day, Rounds 2-7 on Saturday, beginning at 9:30 AM and running the remainder of the day.
Since I certainly won't be the only one up there, here is the multitude of Draft Coverage being provided by my fellow Blog Boxers:
- Constant updates of the event on Islanders Main Website will be provided by Tom from The Tiger Track.
- Opinions, quotes and some "Man in the Street" time will grace the Internet from Ken over at OkposoNet.
- Last, but certainly not least, Mike from over at Islesblogger will be providing some high quality images and video (crossing our fingers) of everything going on during the Draft. As well as, his own brand of analysis.
Well there ya have it folks. We're gonna do our best to get you the kind of inside access that you haven't seen and we're open to any other ideas you might have. Please feel free to express any ideas in the Comments Section.
What to Look for in the Next Couple of Days...
One last thing. I'll be doing a piece within the next day or so about a friend of mine over on Twitter. You may have heard of her. Her name is Dani Muccio (@dani3boyz) and she's the originator of the NHL Tweetup. The next stop for this group is up at the Draft in Montreal and I can't wait to get a chance to meet everyone. Be on the look out for that piece as well.
Catch you guys soon.
