2024 Draft

Wow. Didn’t realize he went that high to the Lightning: Green was good here but too bad that Rod Langway forced his way out of here. We might’ve won the Cup in ‘89 too if he was on that team. He was so good.
Phil Esposito picked him 1st overall when he was running the Bolts.
By decentralizing the draft, the NHL would essentially be moving toward a format that more closely resembles the drafts held by the NBA and NFL. The teams would stay in their own markets instead of attending in person and only the prospects would be on-site.
