The 2011 NHL Draft is only a few short days away, and there is a lot of noise going on concerning several topics of interest.
Such as which team will draft where.
While the first few draft picks have been covered continuously, where are teams such as the Montreal Canadians, Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings picking in the first and second rounds? And who might they be aiming to draft?
There are a lot of interesting players throughout the top 50 or 60 players and I'll be taking a look at a few players who will be picked outside of the top five or 10 that could eventually be impact guys. Unlike some of the more recent drafts, there are a lot of options through each pick, and teams will be able to fill pretty specific needs without going too far off of the board.
And of course there are trade rumors swirling as the draft nears. The Columbus Blue Jackets and Philadelphia Flyers have been jamming up the rumor mill for weeks as the Jackets try to move their No. 8 pick for immediate help.
