The Scott Niedermayer countdown winds down.

I found it: A real-time NHL draft countdown.

Hopefully Scott Niedermayer has found it, too. That’s how long he has to decide whether to retire or seek a contract with the Ducks for 2009-10. We’re down to four days and eight hours-plus as of this posting, meaning the defenseman is soon to make a decision.

Until then, you can throw out the window any draft projections that have the Ducks leaning one way or another, as their selection is sure to depend on whether a certain Hall of Fame defenseman is expected back or not.

Just can’t get enough? Check out draft boards here, here, here, here, hereandhere(with links to about 30 more here).
