On the Beat: Draft talk and the Outdoor Game

What team beat writers are saying this afternoon:

  • Curtis Zupke takes a look back at Dan Wood’s article after the Ducks selected Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf in 2003.  You think the Ducks thought they’d be this good? 
  • A new name for Hurricanes fans to be fixated on, Zach BudishAt 27, you have to have a lot of patience and contingency plans.
  • Mike Heika doesn’t think the Stars should trade down from number eight.  It all depends on the offer, but I can’t see the Stars actively looking to move the pick.  There are a number of very good players that are going to be available at that slot (both defensemen and forwards).
  • Michael Russo loves the NHL DraftIC will be live at the draft this year with up-to-the-minutes updates throughout the weekend.
  • It will be the Bruins versus the Flyers next season at Fenway Park.  Aside from the fact that this game is outside, it actually will be a great on-ice matchup.
  • Peter Laviolette doesn’t think he is a candidate for the Devils’ open coaching positionHe is a quality coach, but maybe Lamoriello is looking to go in another direction.  Either way, I don’t see Laviolette out of work for too long.

Remember that tonight on the IC Radio Show the crew will unveil the Illegal Curve First Round Mock Draft.

Back in business on Tuesday as the Jets welcome former bench boss Paul Maurice and the Panthers to town.

The Moose have another day of practice.
