NHL Draft 2011 Round One Open Thread

 

Draft_medium


It's here, folks. Day one, round one. If you are coming out to the X, be loud and let the hockey world know why Minnesota is the best hockey market in the NHL. If you are not, be sure to join the fun on Versus at 6PM central time. No mater where you are, we hope you will join us here for discussion throughout the first round.

 

Trades, picks, or just making fun of other teams, the Hockey Wilderness community loves to get together for big events. This is one of the biggest. If you aren't excited about this, you may want to move to the Congo. This is the future of the team, no hyperbole needed. 

The Wild, as you should all know by now, hold the 10th overall selection. The Wild will be adding a very good prospect with this pick. Be excited about that. 

To be fully prepared, check out the Hockey Wilderness Draft Page, which includes all of our off-season analysis, profiles on our top thirty prospects, our mock draft, as well as who everyone else thinks the Wild will select. We will update this page as the draft progresses, so stick around.

Also, if you are in town for the draft, be sure to check out the visitor's guide, and if you are in Saint Paul tomorrow, come down to the After Party at Bennett's Chop and Railhouse

After the jump, the order of the first round. Can't wait to see you all here for the first round!
