Bear Essentials: One Day to Go!
 
John Bishop is the beat writer for BostonBruins.com. He covers the Black & Gold hoping to offer a positive look at the team, not only from the stands and the press box, but also from inside the locker room.

Good morning True Believers!

I have meetings today (yay!?), so bear with me as I work to get some more info on the B's draft.

In the meantime, check out the Entry Draft website at http://www.nhl.com/futures/2008 for everything draft-related.

Ok. That should hold you for awhile. I'll have more, later...

1:58 p.m.
Ok folks, I am still in a big ol' meeting in Ottawa. Interesting stuff, but not much to report here.

However, the good people at NHL.com are churning out tons of content.

2:59 p.m.
I've escaped. Thank goodness.

And, after getting lost walking home (there is a canal right through the middle of town, dontcha' know) I am safe and sound in my hotel room.

On my way in I saw a huge press scrum with the Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray in a hotel lobby, so things are heating up.

Buuuuuuuuut, and I can confirm this because I was in a meeting with all the PR directors from around the league, nothing too big has happened -- nobody bolted the meeting, cell phone in hand, etc.

So, stay tuned.

4:09 p.m.
Word from Matt Chmura, the Boston Bruins Director of Communications, is that Marco Sturm keeps texting him about Germany being up 3-1 over Portugal in the Euro2008.

Don't miss Jack's chat.
NESN.com, Friday at 1 p.m.
6:43 p.m.
Our cousins over at NESN.com have Jack Edwards chatting from the NHL draft in Ottawa on Friday, June 20, at 1 p.m.

Jack is a wealth of knowledge, hockey-wise. And, knowing Mr. Edwards as I do, I am sure he will come to the table with some real opinions as to what the B's should do tomorrow night. And he might even tell you a hockey story or two if you ask nicely.

As that will be a slow period between the early morning GM press scrums and the big party later that evening, I would be sure to log in to check out the chat and fill in the gap.

BTW:  NESN's last chat was with GM Peter Chiarelli.
