Every facet of the hockey world has now arrived in Los Angeles for the 2010 draft: Coaches, GMs, scouts, players, agents, soon-to-be-players, media and the fans. It actually seems like more of an event here than it was in hockey-mad Montreal last year.
And your Nation Network correspondents, myself, Robin Brownlee and Pat Steinberg are all over it.

We've heard enough about these guys... what about the rest?
LOS ANGELES -- It goes without saying the spotlight will be on GM Steve Tambellini and the Edmonton Oilers when the first pick of the 2010 Entry Draft is announced Friday.
That selection is a no-brainer in that it will come down to either Plymouth pivot Tyler Seguin or two-time Memorial Cup MVP Taylor Hall of Windsor -- I know, thanks for the news bulletin.
But what about the second time Tambellini and chief scout Stu MacGregor the podium to make the 31st pick?

One more sleep, Nationers. One more sleep until we find out who will be crowned the new Golden Boy of the Edmonton Oilers. I have to be honest, I can’t wait for all of this to be over. For weeks I’ve been listening to the same arguments in the Team Seguin vs. Team Hall debate. This is getting more out of control than Team Edward vs. Team Jacob.

LOS ANGELES -- Edmonton Oilers GM Steve Tambellini jumped in on the wheeling and dealing that's expected to unfold over the next 72 hours by acquiring centre Colin Fraser from the Chicago Blackhawks Wednesday night.
