It's Draft Day! It's like Christmas, except with boys instead of presents! Let's unwrap what Uncle K.Lo got us in the first round, shall we?
Even though I suspect that Sam here was drafted solely because someone told K.Lo that Gagner means "to win" in French, management, er, managed not to screw this one up too badly. Despite the fact that he's a delicate flower who can't be away from his parents for more than 5 minutes, Gagner is kind of cute. Let's hope his momma can keep up with him on the ice in Edmonton.
"Who?" Exactly. Not only is Plante so under-the-radar that he might actually be a figment of K.Lo's sugar-buzzed imagination, the kid sports some unfortunate Raffi-esque facial hair and I'm seriously concerned about what's happening on top of his head. Bad call, K.Lo. Maybe you should lay off the pop rocks and pixie stix before the draft next year.
It's not good when the most interesting thing about a guy is the gorilla on his jersey. Aside from having a cool name and no soul, Nash here is about as bland as they come. I get the feeling K.Lo will be explaining this pick a year from now with, "he's really funny."
Since Can't Hardly Wait is playing on MuchMusic, starring mid-nineties dreamboats Seth Green and Ethan Embry, I'm just going to go ahead and switch away from the draft now that Edmonton's picks are done. Did someone order a LoveBurger? Well done.
