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.

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.

I know the hockey world is swamped with mock drafts and top-30 lists at the moment, but I thought I’d add one more – mine. This is not a mock draft; rather, this is how I rank the players I feel are the top-30 prospects for tomorrow’s draft.
