Derrick Simpson, June 23
With the NHL (and NBA) draft coming up later this week I’ve decided to make a list of all the dos and don’ts to help out all you armchair GMs out there.
Don’t bother interviewing players. These are teenagers for God sake! One day they’re dreaming of winning the Stanley Cup, the next they want to be an astronaut.
Do post an instagram picture with your potential pick. Imagine how jealous all the other GMs will be when they find out that you and Aaron Ekblad are #twinning in matching suits!
Don’t use scouts to figure out which player to draft. All those guys do is scribble on note pads and pretend to watch hockey, they don’t actually know anything!
Do Check out the ratings in NHL 14, they’re super accurate!
Don’t bother attending the draft combine. Who wants to waste a whole day to see if the first rounders can do a pull-up or not?
Do look up players on youtube. If he has a highlight compilation, then he’s a safe pick!
