We are definitely inside of the busy and at least sometimes exciting part of the NHL off-season. I feel like I could just open the doors to The Coffee Shop without anything in the article and the discussion would just go on its own. But in the name of work ethic, I will offer the usual set of polls followed by some discussion questions.
It’s a reopening of trade wires at 8am Thursday followed by the start of the draft Friday evening. It could be an interesting couple of days.

Please remember to click ‘vote’ after each individual poll response.
1) What are your thoughts and predictions on the actual draft part of the draft? Which couple players do you really like in which rounds? Anyone gutsy enough to do a full mock draft, please do it in a separate comment with short format 1-Johnson, 2-Smith, 2-Peters, etc. so we can see however many rounds you want to do without burying the regular discussion.
2) Name a trade that you would either like to see or think that we will see by Sunday.
3) What are your thoughts on the new uniforms? Did you order one yet? Will you? If yes, whose name goes on it?
