The guy is having an amazing year. He's got more goals than Fedorov et al. He must be wanting a big increase in pay...

People have always been under rating Kris Draper. Yes, this year he has had a great year so far, but I doubt it is because of his contract. With all the injuries to other big players on the Wings he had a great chance to step up and and show more of what he is capable of doing.

I hate to sound like a homer, but really I'm just repeating the view of the local sportscasters Joe Micheletti and Howie Rosen that Jason Blake deserves serious consideration for Selke.

I know Draper is a dedicated PKer, but Blake is cut from the same mold -- really fast and really pestering. I believe he has 13 goals right now, and played a couple of weeks with a knee brace that slowed him down from his usual top-speed that is his real true asset, just like Draper.

As for Draper, it's amazing he's finally learned to do something other than skate and play defense. The joke on him is that he'd be a 50 goal scorer if he could score on all of his breakaways. :\ So we'll wait and see if he can keep this up

Can someone explain to me why scoring is so important in determining the best DEFENSIVE forward in the nhl. This is not a knock on Draper, who is a very good defensive player, but it seems these days the Selke always goes to a guy who scores alot.

Someone put it this way => the Selke goes to the forward who has a good season (stats wise I guess), but doesn't qualify for any of the other trophies.

I always thought Draper would be the perfect Captain for a young team, hes got more offensive talent than people think, can kill penalties and is great in his own zone... Id love to see Draper getting 22 Minutes a night on one of the bottom feeders. I personally think he could lead a team... seems like the perfect leader.

Well when your face has been reconstructed due to a cheap from behind hit, then yeah, you are likely to be ugly.

Draper has had to play the role of checker and grinder in the grind line...and now with the departure of Feds Lewis has asked some people to step up and Draper has done more than his fair share

This has been a season where a lot of faces have had to step up and take charge. Look at what Jason Woolley and Mathieu Schneider have done on the blue line, and Drapes and Pavel up front. Due to all the injuries and the departure of Fedorov, Larionov and Robatille, new faces have taken on bigger roles. And I don't think these are "flash in the pan" seasons...I really believe these are guys who are finally being given a chance to show what they can do and they're up for the challenge.

draper isnt the greedy type like lapointe was. He knows his role, and is loving a the career year, he realizes it wont happen again so he's making the best of it, he said so himself. he probably could see a contract for 2.5 a year or so, but nothing higher, inless he was to be a selke nominee, then, um, he might be able to cash in...

Exactly. He is good, but not as good as his stats suggest. I think he will have his best years in Detroit, and should stick with them when they lose so many key players after this run.

naw...i just think he hasnt had the minutes or the challenge to show Detroit what he can do if you actually rely on him for offense rather than the checking role

when you find that out, please tell me. Draper's game hasnt changed in 4 years. He isnt playing any better than he has been.

the difference this time? Somehow the midget grew a set of hands. And hes finishing off his chances. Usually hed fall on a break away trying to handle the puck, or blow a slapshot wide. Now hes netting everything shot he takes.
