Hello again to everyone; it’s been awhile. As I promised at the end of the season I’ll be providing updates from Ottawa at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. I’m heading up tomorrow for what should be an exciting few days for the franchise.
Barring an unforeseen mega-trade offer, it looks like center Steven Stamkos will become one of the newest members of the Lightning organization. I’m excited to meet the young man I’ve heard and read so much about, and I’ll be equally excited to see him pull on a Lightning jersey on the stage Friday night. I’ll try to get some behind-the-scenes pictures to post here, as well as some of the happenings you won’t read about in the papers.
Hopefully we’ll be able to give you the chance to ask Stamkos some questions on TBL.com, stay tuned for details.
Anyhow, I’ll check back in tomorrow after I arrive in Ottawa. Go Lightning!
