    He looks like a young version of Roman Josi. Not saying that’s what he will become, but that’s how he plays.

    Pavel Dorofeyev And Bobby Brink are my top two guys left. Not sure we get so lucky as to get a crack at either though.

    I'd use our surplus of picks to move up to grab one. Maybe even take a flyer on Kaliyev if he falls much further

    I was not a huge Kaliyev fan going into the draft but that was for first round. Think I've talked myself into wanting to take a gamble on him in Rd 2.

    Canes just got a 1st to take on Marleau contract for a year, I think the wings should look at a deal like that from the other cap crunched teams

    Drafting another D above his ranking. Yzerman clearly sees the need at D and has his guys he likes

    Tuomisto wants to play college. That might be the best route for him based on what I am reading about him. He needs to fill out his frame big time.

    Difference between these guys and Sproul is that Sproul’s biggest weakness was his hockey IQ. Both our picks are praised as high IQ players.

    Our most recent pick is 6’7” Swede with tons of skill but has a lot of work to do skating and seeing the ice.

    A year more developed Larkin, Mantha, Bert, AA, Hronek and potential of someone like Cholowski, Rasmussen, or Zadina making a contribution makes me think we can be better than last year. Dont get me wrong, this is still not a playoff team but I'm not sure they are fighting for the worst record next season either

    We will suck ass all year. Go on a 6 game winning streak to end the season, and will, pick 6th.

    I am curious if we even give Zadina, Ras and Cholowski a shot to make the roster or if we let them start in GR.

    Our luck we successfully tank and finish last, Chicago, Pittsburgh and New York all jump us in lottery and we pick 4.

    But hell I think Alexis Lafreniere could be better than Hughes so I'm team put all the youngsters in GR a year to develop, take on a bad contract from a team and get another pick / prospect and tank one more year. In 2 years a lot of our bad contracts off the books and some of our prospects should be ready and guys like Larkin, AA, Bert and Mantha will be hitting their prime. Two years is when to expect us to be better

    Has there been a time when Detroit sports have ever been this collectively bad?

    The ceilings of Broberg and Seider seem
    Not since the Pistons drafted Isiah. Although it helps that the Wings were great for two decades and were bookended by the Bad Boys and the Verlander-Scherzer Tigers.

    Think we could get Gusev from Vegas for taking on Clarkson contract for a year? They are going to have a lot of cap issues

    It’d be a nice deal, for sure. I would hate to not use any of the cap room to bring in an asset.

    In reading/listening to Yzerman, Wright and Draper post draft, it sounds like the Wings board went:

    Hughes
    Kakko
    Dach
    Byram
    Seider

    Out of curiosity, what would be the purpose of this? I get that Ras struggled and Cholowski faded a lot of after a strong start, but do they gain something contractually by them being in the minors? If they're not trying to be good, I guess I don't see the harm, in getting those guys a lot of ice time at the NHL level, which would also allow more ice time for the next group in GR.
