Draft would be lost!
Espn web site is reporting that if the NHL is in lockout come next June that the Entry Draft would not occur. For a Draft to be held there needs to be a collective bargaining agreement.
So when will the Crosby Show happen? Well, lets say that the new CBA happens in January of ’06..then there would be two Drafts appearing one after the other. So they might have a draft in March and then the slated June Draft.
With over 240 games already lost and the ever so useless all-star game lost we now learn that the entry level draft would be lost if no CBA is in place by next June. The trickle down effect is never ending. It is amazing how a sport can touch so many lives in positive and now negative ways.
