Good seats to watch Shero and Phoenix GM negoitiate at tables and then behind all of the tables to comsumate the trade. Wish they had been able to announce it before everyone left. IMHO the top moments from day 1 were as follows:\
1. Over the top loud cheer when Bettman announced Staal trade.
2. Inability for the announce of the predraft roll call to hear a response from Philly due to the boos and jeers from the fans. Priceless.
3. Disbelief in crowd when Pens took not 1 but 2 defensemen in the first round.
Great night and, as usual, great job by the Pens.
