2012 NHL Entry Draft: 1st Round Open Thread


So it begins. Well, pretty soon anyways. Providing you read the links this morning, you know a couple of the big storylines already. Rumours that have been circulating today are about Gillis talking extensively with Brian Burke, and that apparently a Rick Nash trade is in the works. We'll probably update this post with anymore big trade action this afternoon/evening. Anything big on the Canucks front will have special treatment.


  • Oilers take Yakupov, Blue Jackets take Ryan Murray. Yawn.
  • Ducks trade Lubomir Visnovsky to the Islanders for a 2nd round pick in 2013.
  • Capitals send Cody Eakin and a 2nd round 2012 draft pick to the Stars in exchange for Mike Ribeiro.
  • Penguins trade Jordan Staal to the Hurricanes in exchange for Carolina's 8th pick overall in this draft (they chose Derrick Pouliot), Brandon Sutter, and Brian Dumoulin.

Go draft drama.
