NHL Draft Media Coverage Thread


It’s one of the 3 biggest media event days for the NHL ( Free agency day and trade deadline day being the other day). This one is special because Pierre “the finalist” McGuire goes especially nuts.

You are definately watching, listening and tweeting. Don’t talk about the picks here, do that elsewhere.

However, you like to talk about the talk, why else would you be here?

Jeff O’neill has been quite the “shoot from the hip” analyst on tsn radio.

He asked why people would play in the KHL when “they could end up in the trunk of a car.”

He also a couple times has gone on rants about “scumbag agents,” which makes you wonder how his management must have screwed him over.

O’Neill did say that there are many “scumbag agents” but he also said his agent (Anton Thun) was a very good one…………….altough I don’t know if Thun was his agent for his entire NHL career

O’Neill also referred to Nathan Horton as “a bit of a dink” with Hayes prior to the draft starting.
He has no filter, and is very raw, however it is refreshing to hear this type of unpolished commentary.
I like what he has to say, he doesn’t seem to care about hurting anyone’s feelings. Hopefully the folks at TSNR don’t try and tame him.

Listened to Jays Talk today by mistake. Classic exchange with Wilner where the guy calls in asking what Lawrie’s WAR is, and for Wilner to explain it. Wilner says why don’t you explain it? The guy totally gets it wrong. Condescension ensues (I can’t blame Wilner though – who the f is screening these calls?)

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
