Greetings from Newark Liberty International Airport. Gotta hand it to the league, the draft is over and the list is in. Too lazy to click? Here it is:

2003 CHL Expansion Draft Results

1 Colorado - James Sheehan (Defenseman - Lubbock)
2 Rio Grande Valley – Luch Nasato (Defenseman - Memphis)
3 Rio Grande Valley – Peter MacKellar (Forward - Tulsa)
4 Colorado – Denis Desmarais (Defenseman - Odessa)
5 Rio Grande Valley – Andrew Taylor (Forward - Indianapolis)
6 Colorado – Josh Tymchak (Forward - El Paso)
7 Rio Grande Valley – Jason Abel (Forward - San Angelo)
8 Colorado – Michal Stastny (Forward - Memphis)
9 Rio Grande Valley – Derek Stone (Defenseman - Oklahoma City)
10 Colorado – Jorin Welsh (Defenseman - Tulsa)

The first pick is certainly interesting, considering the McAllen paper said Sheehan was retiring. Otherwise, it seems like both coaches would rather deal with vet rule ramifications or the possiblity that a guy won't play than draft a lesser sort who may not make the team.

Guess Memphis was pretty darn sure Stastny is done, or just sure they didn't want him -- they could have pulled him back.

In a bit of news that approximately 87 people in San Antonio could give a shit about at this particular moment, the Rampage have a new coach in Steve Ludzik, and yeah, I'll give myself a little pat on the back for this one, not that it was hard to figure out.

"Doug, I recommend the 1-2-2 forecheck and the Mach 3 Turbo".
