i am pretty sure that could be said about dozens upon dozens upon dozens upon dozens of players

so again what was your point?

again, my point the entire thread and our entire conversation is that I, like many others, would like to see detroit target a few more gritty/tough/big players(and yes those guys as i said are typically but not always north american) but never said we should target these players at the expense of skill or age.

and again, semin is being used as an example of a highly skilled but ultra soft european player that some believe we dont need right now

Mackenzie Maceachern...wouldn't mind the Wings getting this kid. Good size, good skater, local kid. Could develop a pf game if everything goes right.

Anyone know where he's committed to?

MSU, but I think he is spending next season in the USHL. Might be worth a late pick.

I wouldn't mind taking a chance on picking Gusev. Highly skilled player right there. I wouldn't be too suprised if KH traded up tbh.

You might have a point if they didn't pick Sheahan.
You think Sheahan is a power forward?

Sondre Olden, since he is back in the draft I guess.

...how in the hell do you all keep up with draft prospects beyond the top 10 or so?

I couldnt name 10 prospects much less who might be there in the 2nd round when the Wings pick (if they dont trade that, too).

No thanks. He wasnt signed by Toronto for a reason, he had promise at the draft when Detroit wanted him but has done nothing since than to earn a contract.

Carter Rigby is really growing on me. Looks like a real wrecking ball out there. I think the wings should use a late round pick on a huge hitter/forechecker every year. The lack of bottom 6 physicality is depressing

It's a sickness really...

I follow hockey about 4 hours a day. Breaks at work, about two hours when I get home from work. Follow many websites, read up on prospects, lists, watch video obtained from a family member via e-mail. I also got into collecting junior players cards, and currently I have around 100 guys up for this draft and working on next year.

Doubt he goes late round. He's probably going to be gone by the mid 3rd. Teams crave players like him in the "new" NHL.

49-Oscar Dansk- After Mrazek, there's nothing.

80-Mackenzie Maceachern- Fast, great size, going to MSU so it's a good program. Could develop into a PF, but in the 3rd, take a chance.

110-Nick Walters-Good size, good skater, not overwhelming but has a good shot at making the NHL based on an all around skillset. Plus, he'll drop the mits.

140-Anton Zlobin-Late bloomer so to speak. Great puck skills, but needs to learn how to become a pro. 2nd year eligible so I'm guessing he drops a bit.

170-Max Iafrate-Didn't develop as planned but, he's a big body that can skate. In a good program, maybe dad teaches him a few things. He'd probably punch a fan to win a game.

200- Gianluca Curcuruto-Once highly touted but he really fell off the map. In fact, he wasn't even near the map. On the plus side, he's got decent size, and played on the same team as Ryan Sproul. That means the Wings have seen him play plenty of times, and maybe with the last pick they toss the guy a bone.

Also, would love for the Wings to get a couple more picks.

I have a good friend (who I trust very much) that came across him numerous times while scouting other kids in the NE Prep ranks. He described him as a big (6'2" 200 +lbs), athletic, competitive, goal scorer. He is apparently a solid skater who is perhaps more north-south than slippery. He is off to Harvard in the fall. Even after recent drafts, I still think we could stand to have a couple more big, shoot-first players.

He should be available when we pick in the 2nd and is likely undervalued because of where he played. I think we have enough organizational balance to go with either a forward or defensemen with that second round pick. If we go with a forward, Hart would be a solid option in my opinion.

Holy -ish. You seriously need to consider getting your foot in the door in hyper-competitive Midget hockey, then.

If you have that sort of time and dedication, you should use those skills. Who knows? Maybe youre awesome at it and move up the chain (so to speak).

It's beyond stupid to draft a goalie with your first/second pic... goalies are signed in free agency or picked in later rounds for a longshot, lowrisk high reward project.

I think we should look at moving guys like Emmerton for late picks.

Agree 100%. We are at the point where we have several guys in GR who can handle call up duty.

We'd be lucky to get a 7th for Emmerton.

This. First of all, Emmerton shouldn't be on our 4th line. Secondly, he will never be more than a 4th liner and I believe Sheahan/Andersson could take his place anytime.

If someone is willing to trade for him, it's basically getting a pick for nothing.

Really. That's why goalies are never, ever picked in those two rounds.

Yup, beyond stupid...

I wouldn't say that it is stupid, but I don't think it is the right move for the organization in this draft. I would like to see them take a goalie in the fourth or fifth round. We need to draft a goalie but we aren't desperate.

Only reason why detroit picked mccollum in the first round of 2008 is because they just won a cup and they felt they could "take a chance", even holland himself has stated this
