from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal, Random thoughts as the NHLdraft approaches this weekend: - *Why didn’t the Flyers wait until draft day Friday at their Wells Fargo Center to move Scott Hartnell as Minnesota did to create a splash with their faithful when they hosted the draft and dealt Brent Burns to San Jose? Maybe because they risked 14,000 boos from the home...
