Today is the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, happening live at the Rock from 3 to 10 PM EST. This post is an open thread for readers and fans to discuss what's going on at the draft from picks to deals to rumors to more picks.

Today is the day. The 2013 NHL Draft will take place at the Rock this afternoon. The New Jersey Devils are hosting and right about now, the fan fest has begun right outside of the Prudential Center.

I'll be there doing my best to cover it for you. There's a lot of chatter of trade activity. But like weather reports in New Jersey regarding snow, we'll wait and see whether there's actually any flurries or if it was all just talk and speculation. In the meantime, please use the comments here to talk about anything that happens today from picks in the first round to trades & deals to picks in the seventh round. If you want to just chat about the Devils in general, that's OK in this post too.

I put together a short preview for today yesterday, but here's the key information for you to follow today's events.

The Time: 3 PM EST - 10 PM EST, June 30, 2013

The Broadcast: NBC Sports Network will start things off at 3 PM EST, as will TSN. NBCSN will have a live stream of it here. The NHL Network will continue from NBCSN at 8 PM EST so be prepared to switch if you're watching the whole thing. The NHL Network will have both a draft preview show at 1 PM EST and a post-draft show at 10:30 PM EST.

The Devils' Picks: The New Jersey Devils currently have four picks in this draft: 9th overall, 39th overall, 100th overall, and 160th overall. That's a first, a second, a fourth, and a sixth round pick, respectively.

The Rules: They apply at all times as usual. No cursing, no personal attacks, etc. You really should know these by now.
