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.

Having to roll to the top prospects luncheon and having Kent in the air means we're away from the site at a potentially inopportune time.  I thought I'd post this to get discussion going, as Darren Dreger is reporting the Flames have asked defenceman Robyn Regehr to waive his no trade clause and accept a trade to Buffalo.  As things become more official, it'll be good to have a thread up where the comments can start to flow.

Harley Norman Hotchkiss died on Wednesday.

It was a sad day for Calgary, Alberta, and Canada. Our nation lost a true Roman, if you will.

Draft Bloggin: Chilling at the Holiday Inn

What you're looking at is the piece de resistance of what I like to call the "Pat Steinberg Super Sex Suite" (stealing from a former radio colleague) at the beautiful Holiday Inn Express in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Actually, this is my sad office in Minny, as I'm staying here for the first night before joining the rest of the media at the Hilton one block away.  Wednesday was fairly vanilla in the Twin Cities, but Thursday will be busy.  A reminder: FlamesNation radio will be on the air on Sportsnet Radio FAN 960 starting at 6 pm Thursday night with Kent and I.  We'll be using live comments on the site to drive the conversation and you can also interact on the phones and on Twitter.
