Good news, Oilers' fans! Well, news that isn't as bad as it could have been!
Your faithful correspondent, Ben Massey, will be climbing out of his mother's basement, putting on the underwear without a hole in it, and getting on a plane to Los Angeles for the NHL Entry Draft in a couple of weeks, where he will doubtless rub elbows with Hollywood celebrities, get himself into compromising situations, and do things he'll profoundly regret. In between all of this, he will presumably attend a draft and possibly deign to do some writing about it. He may also hit whoever the Flames draft in the knee with a tire iron, but that depends on how the media availability goes.
This post isn't to gloat - well, not entirely to gloat. It's also to solicit requests from you, the Copper & Blue faithful. Is there anything you'd particularly like to see covered? Anything you've always wanted to know about the draft but never been able to find out? Any nagging questions about prospects that might be cleared up if the NHL actually lets bloggers close enough to talk to some of them? This is your chance, because the hockey gods know Ben can't come up with any ideas of his own. Post what you want in the comments or even fire off an e-mail using the links at the bottom of this page: we are here to serve!
And to party. But mostly to serve.
