It's a big day in Edmonton.
Despite the warm weather, we're donning our Oilers jerseys for draft parties. For the first time in the history of Oilers franchise, we've landed the coveted number one draft pick. It's Taylor Hall vs. Tyler Seguin. Admist a coaching shuffle and our star players begging to be traded, we're just hopeful the newest member of the Oilers is happy to become an Edmontonian. Our inside sources tell us on that merit, we better pray the Oilers choose Tyler - a talented centre.
Today when workplaces shut down to watch the draft, just remember, in Edmonton, it's more than just hockey - it's our community bond all winter long.
