So do I! But if the scernario plays out with us being 8th seed and losing in the first round, how does the league decide where we draft?

Hakan is on record saying he is scouting Russia more this year because of their strong draft class, which is the only reason I am a little unsure.

We need Power Forwards and Big Physical Defensive DMen like you said, and thats how the Wings ussually draft in the early rounds. Big Strong Skilled Physical players are hard to come by and are only really available in the top 2 rounds.

Also what kind of pick does it look like we are going to end up with?

Well if the season were to end right now we would have the 21st pick.

I doubt they will draft a power forward or a physical defencemen it's been a while since they did.

As for the Russians in the draft there is a couple expected to go in the first round that are playing in North America right now. Also this is definately the year to go after the Russians they will probably fall into our lap because alot of the weaker teams will be afraid to take them in fear they wont come over. If Detroit were to trade down and end up with three 2nd round picks we could get some highly skilled talented Russians maybe even get lucky and get another Fedorov or Datsyuk.

Best player available [that fits the system]. Period. I hope the best player available is a true center. I doubt it will be a defensive defensemen, a lot of teams overvalue those guys and take them early. And power forwards, while valuable, are few and far between and go quick. One can hope, but, again.... best player available [that fits the system].

Big Puck Moving D
Smith
Kindl

Power Forwards
Abdelkader
Mattias
Axelsson

The only picks in the first 2 rounds that haven't been listed since 05 are McCollum, Emmerton, Tatar, and Ferraro. Like I said they like to play it safe in the first 2 rounds. Axelsson was the only risky pick and look where it has gotten them. I am sure the Wings won't do that again. They made that clear when they took McColum over Markstrom.

Also the Wings haven't drafted a forward in the 1st round since 92 when they drafted Curtis Bowen.

Wings picks: Bjugstad, Pickard (WTF), McIrath, MacFarland


I'd take any of the 3 that are skaters. We dont need ANOTHER goalie, regardless if hes BPA becuase eventually we need to move a goalie and thats near impossible these days.

Yeah, I just read that same article. Drafting another goalie is preposterous.

I don't know much about the prospects lower down the ranking, so I'll trust the other members' judgment on them. But this ranking will be completely different IMO when the official rankings are announced.

We have some pretty strong prospects already for all positions, but what position do you think the Wings scouts will be looking for?

I'm curious to see who we draft this year, since it's a long time since we will draft so early, no? Maybe we could use it as part of a trade.

Not that I want another goalie, but if the Wings ends up picking one in the first round, I'd question the managment if they take Pickard over Campbell..

A long time since we draft 30th overall? not really, we did it just 2 years ago

Dylan McIlrath seems like a very interesting prospect. He has size and from what I have read he can play. The only question really is would he fit into the system?

http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...php?pid=116161

The kid is everything we need, we won't be drafting this high in a long time so the Red Wings need to be very careful about who they draft.

Since you changed it to puckmoving defencemen I'll let it slide this time

As for Power forwards. Axelsson will probably never play for the Wings so he's out. Gator will probably not develop into anything more than a 3rd or 4th liner. However we all thought the same thing about Franzen so never say never.

Markstrom wasnt a risky pick at all it was the right pick and Detroit blew it. The Wings had an excellent draft last year addressing their need for more skill. Now they need to correct their lack of physical defensive defencemen and power forwards. They might not be able to find power forwards unless they trade up for NN (which they wont) so they should pick the high skilled Russians.

It's tough to say. Campbell looked good at times during the WJC and Pickard will probably be playing in this years WJC. I think both players could go in the 1st or 2nd round so it's not worth spending a draft pick on it. They have Howard and Larsson will hopefully be ready soon plus they also have McCollum and Pearce. Next years draft is supposed to be as bad as 1999 so they should take a chance and draft a couple of goaltending prospects next year if they need it.

No, I meant 19th overall, when was the last time we drafted that early?

Well i can say already that he won't fall all the way to our pick. He's one of the about 8 kids in this draft who are considered "no-risk". Of course every kid has a risk but he has all the skills to possibly be the most talented Russian since Ove.

Speaking of falling Russians, what do you guys think of Tarasenko? Arguably the best Russian in the draft, he should fall quite a bit because of his existing KHL contract.

From what I've read, he fully intends to report to his NHL team after his contract is up. (2 years).

I've never seen the guy but if he drops into the 20s where we will be drafting, we should take him and run. We can wait the full 2 seasons, we probably would have kept him their anyways all that time.

But that is one of the few scernarios I see where the Wings get a Russian. Maybe they trade their first for 2 2nd rounds and spend 1 of their 3 2nd rounders on a Russian (sorta like they did in 06 by drafting a risky player HTD with one of their 2nds and went with safer players with the other 2)

Ilrath seems good to me... but is he a good D? Or will he turn out like erskine? Not that Erskine is bad just that he has no 1st-2nd rounder value.

Tarasenko is amazing. He's at least as good, if not better than Kabanov.. We wont get either one of them though, so I wont get my hopes up.. If the Wings want a Russian, Galiev and Kuznetsov are more realistic targets..

We should also be able to pick up a good prospect in the 2nd round. A lot of good players will be left on the board after the 45th pick.. I'd be very happy if we got Calle Järnkrok..

Ok, so Red Wings usually don't draft Russians in the 1st round but if Kabanov (who is ranked 31st) would still be there.. any chance that Red Wings would take him, i mean, if he can get everything straight he is talent-wise in class with Seguin/Hall. What do you think?

The Almost.

I don't know if this has been noticed here, but Håkan told a Norwegian internet site(?) that he's interested in young norwegian, Sondre Olden. Here's the interview: Link

I don't know if serious enough to choose him in the draft or just talking nice to the Norskis but he seems like an interesting kid. Right now he's playing in the U18 Division 1 tournament and is 7+12=19 in just 4 games... He's also currently listed at 6'4"/198 lbs, 193cm/90kg
