The Ottawa Senators will most likely take Czechoslovakian defenceman Roman
Hamrlik with their first choice (2nd overall) in Saturday's NHL entry draft.
Senator personnel have been to Czechoslovakia to meet Hamrlik and his parents,
and the Senators have also brought them to Ottawa for a tour.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have apparently narrowed their number one pick down to
one of:

and:

Whichever one of the above two isn't selected by the Lightning may go to the San
Jose Sharks.

BTW, Senator ticket prices are among the most expensive in the league, ranging
from C$21 to C$100 each.

The point is moot (I got into trouble the other day when I used the word
"academic") since, according the the Globe & Mail, the Senators have sold
out the year already.

The way I understand it (I am a Senator's season ticket holder) is that all
the season tickets have been sold - there are about 10,000 of them.  However
there are supposed to be a small number (300-500) tickets that will be
available to the public.

As well, the most expensive seats are the Gold Circle seats at roughly
$200 per game.  The $100 ones are the box seats, and the $50 (like mine)
are the lower 20 some rows.
