A few other things I noticed in the first round:
- Do all of the teams have to give those long winded introductions? They were old when the Blues were doing it at #1, and you still had guys in the second half of the first round trying to have something new to say... just make the pick, guys! Maybe the should have the commish announce all the picks like the NFL does.
- Did Kessel look pudgy to anyone else?
- One other thing on the teams - just send a representative or two to the podium - we don't need to see a bunch of guys standing up there - it just slows things down and really doesn't add anything of value that I can see.
Will be interesting to see what kind of coverage this gets in the Sunday Post-Gazette tomorrow, since they've been horribly sparse in their articles for Sunday editions.
