Open Thread: Draft Day #1

Here's how it's going to work, kids.You guys can use this thread to discuss all the goings on at the draft.

If/when the Ducks do something, we'll announce it on the top of the home page with some quick details and then either Daniel or Justin will offer some commentary a little bit later. Keep it civil and have fun!

For comprehensive analysis, head to the main SBN NHL Draft site

Here are some pictures from Consol Energy Center by fellow SBN'er Matthew Wagner. (On the second picture, notice the proximity between the Anaheim and Toronto Table. Scary or awkward?)
