No thanks on Tkachuk. I think he ends up a winger.

Not saying I want him. People seem to be split on him, some think top 3 after dahlin and svech, while others put him quite a bit later. I think he's skilled and very gritty. Very punchable face.

No, it isn't bad. It just reflects where we are as a franchise at the moment.

McIsaac, Merkley, Wilde, Boqvist... Gimme a defenseman. Then go for all boom or bust forwards.

Just give me more than one first-round pick (though I like your list)

This. Flip green, Tatar, and or Gus for another first. This draft looks deep

We're on the same page here. I think Boqvist has emerged as an early favorite of mine. He seems like the first guy to ever deserve the EK comparisons he gets. I think a guy like McIsaac is more what the Wings will prioritize with the way our defense has been formed thus far, but frankly I'd be happy with any of these guys. Dahlin would obviously be ideal but there appear to be about 5-10 D in this draft that could play on the first line and we're still a year from draft day. That's crazy!

In rounds 2-7 I hope we draft almost exclusively boom-bust, high IQ forwards. Preferably centers, but after the Ras pick I think our depth at center will be fine. We need guys with big upside so if a winger has higher upside take him over the lower upside C.

I'd also add Woo to that list. He looks like a stud

If we traded 2 out of 3: Green, Tatar and Gus to have three 1sts and two 2nds (we already have Ottawa's) in this draft that would be insane. We would have the ability to move up and down to essentially any position and really target guys we like. I honestly think this is the year to do it too. The centers at the top end don't look particularly inspiring but the defense looks really really good and very deep.

I'm not getting too tied up into positions. If zadina is the most skilled guy on the board when we draft I say take him. (Or whoever is at the top of the board a year from now)

If they trade Green and/or Nyquist for additional picks, they're absolutely right there contending for a top-3 draft slot.
You can also add in the fact that we had Vanek for 40+ games who def helped us win at least 4 games throughout that 40+ game stretch which would have been 8 of those 9 points as well, who is no longer on the roster (as of now). Only. Problem is a lot of guys had statically the worst years of their career. If a couple of them get back on track, we win more games. I think where we end up in the standings will simply come down to, how good is our PP

I agree. There's a lot of very interesting defense. Veleno will be worth keeping an eye on, but I would be more interested in picking a D (or Svechnikov obviously). Maybe if we do pick up another first: Alex Khovanov would be a bargain for a C prospect. Russian factor might help him drop a bit.

Gimme the break down on McIsaac, I've heard plenty of hype. What's your reading?
