    NEW YORK -- The NHL canceled its draft Thursday, the latest casualty of the six-month lockout.

    The annual event had been scheduled for June 25-26 in Ottawa, but it was scrapped along with the entire 2004-05 season that was called off Feb. 16.

The league should have to make all the draftees free agents. Instead, they're stuck waiting, and, since they're not part of the player's union yet, it's not even their fault.

I actually heard about this today...as mainly a professional wrestling fan I don't watch many real sports. Yet, I have to say, Hockey was one that I occationally got into when I could watch one of the games. So, I see, the rudder is still stuck in the mud here. Sad, really sad.

Who would've had the #1 pick (i.e. Sidney Crosby) had a draft taken place?



I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask another? My Chief of Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the police? Here's one that's really important because we've got a lot of sports fans in this town: touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you?

Since there was no season and subsequently no win/loss records, they couldn't use that to determine draft order. I suppose they could've gone back to the records from the year before unless they had something else in mind.

They were talking about using a weighted lottery using the 2003-04 season records.

Yeah, Washington was really hoping for the chance to get consecutive first round picks, I hear.

They'd better figure something out that isn't the same as the 2003-04 records. A lot of other teams have lost/will lose players, so every team should have a chance. Not an equal chance, mind you, so a weighted lottery sounds like a good compromise.

As somebody who's already has his picture taken with the Cup...and flirted with going to the draft in 2000, go for the picture and leave. Drafts are generally a lot of waiting, and nobody past the first round is really worth noting...
