Draft time approaches

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Greetings from the palace known as Xcel Energy Center, one of the finest buildings in North America. It's less than two hours to draft time.

We're in our seat (fourth row of the media riser, next to the Boston Herald and the Canadian Press), but the Sabres have yet to arrive on the arena floor. They are one of the few teams that chose to stay in St. Paul rather than Minneapolis, so traffic shouldn't delay them.

Here's a look at the arena and the interview area.
