Does anyone need to practice for the big moment?
That’s right: do you need to go outside and boo at random strangers, or perhaps a tree, or an alley cat, or your car?
While one can debate the appropriateness of booing Gary Bettman at events other than the raising of the Stanley Cup, the fact is: he will be booed and booed mightily and maybe you’d like to join in from your own home.
Go ahead, give it a try.
The Kings pick twice tonight, once at five — their pick for all of their hard work at losing — and again at 22 — the pick acquired as part of the Jake Muzzin trade.
Teams are bound to make wacky trades. Someone’s going to butcher the pronunciation of an unfamiliar name. The Kings might do something useful. And we’re here for all of it.
Hang out in tonight’s open thread to discuss all the moves, big and small, for the first day of the draft.
