The first round commences this evening and in anticipation I asked each writer here at FN to put together their own "draft board" or ranking of players they would like to see the team pick with the 13th overall choice (assuming nothing changes in the interim). Without further ado, here's how things shake out:

Well, after being a bit of a dunce and booking a really late flight on Thursday knowing full well we had a radio show that night, Kent Wilson got his skinny ass to Minnesota on time for the first ever edition of FlamesNation Radio. It was a much, much, much busier day in Minnesota, as we bring you a little of what happened. By the way, the picture above is what we like to call the Steinberg Super Sex Suite: Part 2. Including two beds...double the magic.

Guys, thanks so much for making the debut edition of FlamesNation Radio a succes on Sportsnet Radio FAN 960 Thursday night. Kent and I had a blast doing it, so thanks for blowing up the comments section and adding your voice on the phone. It's the first of what we hope to be a regular show on the station, and we're really happy with the interaction on the first show. Topics include Robyn Regehr, Ryan Smyth and Calgary's 13th overall pick at the Draft.

Earlier during draft week I went through a few prospects I thought might be interesting for the Calgary Flames to look at with their two second round picks. Well, as it stands right now (and things could change, as we know), the Flames hold the 13th overall pick. Who might fall to them there? And who might be a good fit? I've got my ideas as we start wishing away again...

For the first time ever, FlamesNation.ca will have it's own radio show, as we go live from the NHL Entry Draft in Minnesota tonight on Sportsnet Radio FAN 960. Kent Wilson (if he gets here) and I will be bringing the show to you, and this article will drive the conversation...your comments will direct what we discuss, so make sure you post early and often. We'll also be taking phone calls; FlamesNation commenters, if you use your commenting name with the screener, you'll go to the front of the line. The show goes from 6 till 9 pm Calgary time.
