The first day of the 2010 NHL Draft was pretty uneventful for the Maple Leafs but there certainly was some manoeuvring done league-wide. SBN sent 14 writers to the draft and the story stream of the first day is spectacular. There is a lot of video and analysis there and it's a portal to the other team sites in case you want to delve deeper.
Day two will receive the same treatment at SBN even though the next rounds of the draft will not be on TSN. If you have a stream, toss it in the comments. Be sure to ask any beat writers on Twitter how they are doing since one of my favourite memories from last year was how hungover everyone was and the sheer amount of Gatorades that were on ice for the media. It probably saved my life. Stanley Cup Phil could have used one or two when I saw him.
This will serve as the open thread for day two of the draft and I'll add a new one depending on how things go.
