Abdelkader is a very divided player in terms of what Wings fans think of him. What the team thinks of him is quite clear. They have given him a four year contract this off-season and like that he can play both wing and center on the bottom six lines. He hits, has some size and fights even though he isn't great at it. I don't think he is the first name available although Cousins is certainly tearing apart the OHL and they should be quite familiar with him from all their time with Sproul and the trips up to check on his progress. But he is another slight foward and short forward, the pick on top of it would be nice.

I just think Gator is a tough move for the actual management team. They like him and his slow start hasn't been harped on in the press either by anyone around the team. It is a bottom six problem all around, so not just him.

Noebels is a big guy, but I am not as sure on him. He would fit getting bigger, but they are pretty loaded at the winger spot in the prospect department.
