You have to hand it to the NHL when it comes to embracing new media, especially bloggers.
SB Nation, our network that we belong to that has a blog for every damn team in the NHL, has 14 people covering the NHL draft. That's amazing. First of all, everyone is paying their own way. And second, they actually like us here at Game Time and share stuff. You saw a photo down below taken by Jim at Blueshirt Banter. That was nice and unexpected.
Then we got an email from Tyler Bleszinski, the guy who started the entire SBN family of sports blogs. He's a hockey guy at heart (Devils, which we'll give a pass to...this time -- we still hate the late Judge Houston, sir) but started the Oakland blog Athletics Nation. Well Papa Blez as he's known around the Internets had a Flip camera and got about three feet away from John Davidson while he was talking to reporters on the draft floor.
What did the Blues see in Jaden Schwartz? Why did they make the trade to draft Vladimir Tarasenko? Hear it from the president of the Blues himself, straight from the floor of the 2010 NHL Draft in L.A.
