I'm pretty excited to be covering my very first NHL draft tonight, and it looks like it may shape up to be a good one.
Faced with the looming threat of a plunging salary cap next year, there are a lot of star players on the auction block right now and they could find some takers this evening, which should make for an exciting night for the crowd.
I'll be covering the evening's festivities for The Canadian Press, focusing my attention on the Ottawa Senators and Calgary Flames. But of course, I will be posting my reactions to any moves the Habs make over the course of the evening.
I'm not really sure if I'll have a lot of free time to be posting here, so for those of you who have succumbed to the Twitter revolution I would ask you to follow me there. I'll be posting little updates throughout the draft.

See you all tonight, it should be a good one!
