64. Jim Howard - Starting G
95. Valtteri Filppula - 2nd line C / 60+pts
97. Johan Franzen -1st line W / ~30g, ~60pts
132. Darren Helm - 3rd line C / 30+pts
132. Kyle Quincey - top 4 D
291. Jonathan Ericsson - 5/6 D

Sure, no Datsyuk/Zetterberg/Lidstrom but let's not get carried away here.

EDIT:

Lineup with NHL regulars from last season Wings drafted after Zetterberg...

Johan Franzen - Valtteri Filppula - Tomas Fleischmann
Jiri Hudler - Darren Helm - Tomas Kopecky
Cory Emmerton - Shawn Matthias - Justin Abdelkader

Niklas Kronwall - Kyle Quincey
Jonathan Ericsson - Jakub Kindl

Jim Howard

I think this is where the phrase 'haters gonna hate' would fit.

Look at Rasmus Bodin in the 7th, 6'6 and skates well. Where did they hide this guy?
