Friday's Dump & Chase: TGIF

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

The week is over, but the fun is just beginning! The draft is on Sunday, and we'll finally (hopefully) get our reward for having to endure such a terrible season. While we will undoubtedly get an impact player at #4, we have no idea who that's going to be. Colorado says they're not drafting Seth you buy it? If he slips a bit, will Florida take him at #2? We better hope so, because Tampa might be drafting for offense after their buyout of Vincent Lecavalier. My prediction? Everybody is lying about their preference and we end up with Barkov. How 'bout you? (If there was a draft for Best Blog in Nashville, OTF would definitely go #1...but there isn't. To make it happen, we need your vote in the Toast of Music City Reader's Choice Awards. Thanks in advance, and we promise to fulfill that #1 pick potential the rest of the year.)
