I am totally cool with this. I was hoping for him (among many others, yes, but I was hoping nonetheless).

He's going to be a great fit. He's an energy guy and a great skater.

NHL Central Scouting's Blair MacDonald: "He's very good defensively. He has very good defensive positioning; he's always on the right side of the puck. If there's a turnover he's in good position right away. And he comes back deep in his own zone to help. He's very strong defensively, as well as being an offensive threat."

Ranked 18th by CSS -- I like this pick. Sort of a Helm with better scoring and a right-hand shot.


Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!

The first three attributes listed on his THN profile were skates well, thinks the game on a high level and has a consistent work ethic. Yup, sounds like a Red Wing.

Did he really play center this season? His stats (37 goals, 18 assists) look very winger-like.

Very strong pick, exactly what I wanted. As far as Ferraro, he's wing and center, he played both.

Landon is a hell of a player, i've watched him over the last 2 seasons and he only gets better and better every game. Excellent pick up for the wings.

Some people over on Mlive were critical of his plus/minus, but what they didn't check was his team was awful this season in Red Deer.

thank god!

the wings will have some great pk lines in the years to come with obviously z and dats, helm and abby, now ferraro. apparently he has the same qualities as the little ball of hate father of his, and more... he's the guy i wanted when a few others were picked (kassian...), so here's to him hopefully kickin' ass with the black aces next year beerchug.gif

When was the last time the Wings drafted the son of a famous NHLer?

Only when his son has the puck. When those soft euros have it then he's back to bashing them. "Zetterberg should've passed the puck to my son there. I know he was covered but still he has a better shot from the circle."

Well I'm kidding but Ferraro has a ton of respect for the wings and it shows.
