    Yes media, keep hyping up top five forwards this draft.. Make everyone forget about Byram until six.

    2019 Draft

    If Trouba were locked up long-term I'd consider it, but no way do you trade the 6th overall pick for a pending UFA. Not to mention one that has been rumored to be interested in coming home for the past few years now. EIther a package involving Green and picks or wait until next offseason. Yeah, there's no doubt that a guy projected to go in the 1st round will be available at 35, but I just don't see any of those guys being there, especially Tomasino. Kaliyev is a very similar player to Mantha. Elite goal scoring ability with issues in consistency / work ethic. I think he'll be gone in the 15-25 range though. Yeah, Leason is a player I can see maybe being available at 35, and I'd definitely scoop him up there.

    Makes sense. I guess I'd say Hagelin + Gudas > Niskanen at this point, if that's what it took to keep Hagelin. I'm not the biggest Gudas fan, but Hagelin has been much better for the caps than anywhere else he was recently. It will be interesting to see how Gudas and Wilson are on the same team

    Hagelin is overpaid too? That sounds like a reasonable deal, but I admit I am not that familiar with the guy.
  7. Agreed. Moose will probably end up a middle 6 forward who can play 2W or 3C and be a net front presence on the PP, but Ehn is a 4C at best and DLR is a spare F on just about any team. Abby, Helm, and Nielsen may be overpaid and/or on bad contracts, but they are all 3rd liners on most teams and 4th line regulars at worst.

    Cuz AA is a better fit on the 3rd line. 6 is too much for a guy who will be available a year from now. I would include on of our 2nds in a deal for Trouba, but nothing higher. If I were Yzerman I would wait until after the draft to make a deal tho. 1. Can't trade away any 2019 draft picks at that point, and 2, if they luck out and Byram is still there at 6, then I would just wait until next summer and try to sign Trouba without giving up any assets.

    Yeah, they're all long shots, but someone falls almost every year. Those are just the kids at the high end of the range that could fall. Brink seems under the radar a bit, and a lot of rankings have Kaliyev in the 20s (and a couple into the 30s), which seems weird for a kid that scored 50 goals. There's hope. But if not them there'll be another kid considered 1st-round talent there at 35. Quite a few think Leason should go in the first, for example. Hard to get too excited about a kid that didn't do anything in Jrs until he was 20, but could be a good pick. The Bert-Larkin-Mantha combo produced 24 points. Barely better than the Nyquist-Larkin-Abby combo, and worse than Bert-Larkin-Nyquist. They looked good at the end of the year, but we're a long way from where we should set anything in stone. And the Ranger thing was a joke, since they went off the board a bit with Kravstov and Andersson the last two years. And McIlrath not that long ago for that matter.

    What they fail to mention that Podkolzin wrestles with bears for his off season summer training.

    Our new Konstantinov? Man this is bad there’s so many kids I want In the 2nd round
  14. nyqvististhefuture

    2019 Draft

    Just saw it and I’m sure some of you already seen it but figured I’d post it up ... it’s probably wishful thinking on my part but I can totally see yzerman taking podkolzin just for the fact he’d probably look back at his career and those cup wins and see himself ,fedorov,zetterberg,datsyuk being elite 2 way forwards back in the day and that’s exactly what podkolzin is , man Friday can’t come soon enough one way or another all this wondering stuff will be over
  15. nyqvististhefuture

    2019 Draft

    That’s fine ... I think there’s gonna be a ton of moves and I’d love to get into the 1st again , I’m being delusional but hopefully we can get the Tampa 27th with Callahan for like 60 or 66 + turgeon or something or target the 18th from Dallas for some picks since Dallas picks again at 18 and if we think we can get the player want go from 18 to like 22 and get another pick back from the Dallas move , a lot of action I see happening this weekend I predict Daley is gone this weekend for a pick there’s a ton of kids with upside I like in the first 2-3 rounds and some later as well I’m really high on this draft so should be good https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/290462/marcel-barinka hoping we take a chance on him with one of our 5ths or early 6 , I think he has some upside if he ever hits , just turned 18 had a nice. World juniors tournament +hlinka Tournament , not great numbers with Halifax but everyone at the top of the team is 20-21 and will likely be gone so he might get a ton of more ice time now anyways lots to like

    2019 Draft

    Haha true , i personally think he’s gonna be the guy yzerman will pull the trigger to get a dman and/or picks especially if he gets another 30 goals and demands 7-8 per and becomes a problem to negotiate another deal , yzerman won’t tolerate that s*** and move him + If were really lucky and our prospects develop well we got a ton of guys to potentially fill in a top 6 role outside of our Larkin line ... Rasmussen,veleno,zadina,hirose,#6pick,Berggren,svechnikov ... I could be wrong but I just don’t see a longterm career in Detroit for AA id never trade the #6 pick for trouba , everyone knows my take and I’m sticking to waiting till July 2020 and with all the rumors of him wanting to come home for years I’m gonna believe it’s true , I’ll gamble it out if it doesn’t work out we trade AA for a d chip , besides yzerman already knows where trouba’s head is at one way or another

    2019 Draft

    It's not that I don't like him, just not my preference. but honestly there's probably 10 kids that can go at #6 and be NHL players one day and Pod is one of them. I honestly want to see some dealin going on Friday. I'd love to have another 1st by the end of the round.
  18. LeftWinger

    2019 Draft

    all this talk of our lines, and not one with AA on them. we need D most importantly. how about we skip the O and if Byram isn't there, trade the #6 for Trouba?
  19. nyqvististhefuture

    2019 Draft

    Yes I’m assuming that line sticks together and unless they just lose chemistry for some reason or blashill seperates them they should be ok , and I’d see the podkolzin line as a future number 1 but not right away maybe Like 5 yrs from now, it all depends how they progress right? If zadina becomes a 30-50 goal guy like we hope he can be, if veleno turns out to be this great play making center and podkolzin is this relentless 2-way guy like Pavel was and can put up numbers they have the potential to be a #1 star line ... all if’s right now that’s why the lottery is pretty much a crapshoot and we gotta count just as much on our developmental staff to help this kids 1 and 2 same for followed by turcotte and zegras , And agreed I personally think your top 3 + turcotte just make their linemates better I see no reason to f*** up this draft at 6 , I think yzerman showed up just in time and will take the bpa, I’m sure Draper will try and convince him to take dach but he won’t be afraid to not listen to that crap , anyways should be a fun draft either I’ll be drinking to celebrate the pick or drinking to numb the pain haha
  20. That's barely a fourth line right now, imo.
  21. Reason to demote him to the minors is so he can get better , that’s what teams do ya know? I’d rather see him getting 20+ minutes a night and ppl time in Grand Rapids than 10-12 here and you know deep down with guys like Nielsen,helm and glendening here he won’t be viewed as our 7th best forward ... I’m just trying not to f*** up this kid already and turning him into a bottom line guy, he was our 9th pick I want him to succeed Grand Rapids are gonna be stacked this year , maybe he plays with a veleno and svechnikov to start the year or something similar and goes nuts and gets called up after 15-20 games , who knows what will happen with this team all depends if yzerman signs someone and/or gets rid of some deadweight

    2019 Draft

    Assuming Bert, Mantha, and Larkin stay together. I agree that Pods, Veleno, and Zadina would be a good line too. No definitive 1st or 2nd there. Neither would be elite top lines, but they would both be too good to be considered 2nd lines too. Reminds me of the late 90s early 00s Wings teams, where aside form the grind line, the other lines were interchangeable. My order would be at 6th: 1.Byram 2. Pods 3. Zegras 4. Cozens I would be pleased with any of those picks. The other names being mentioned at 6th are either redundant, or have lower ceilings IMO. Is Dach 6 foot 3 or a 6 foot tree?
  23. nyqvististhefuture

    2019 Draft

    Our Larkin line right now is solid , for me if we landed podkolzin and veleno turns out to be a 2c which I’m hoping for a zadina veleno podkolzin Might eventually turn into our 1st line , if not it’s gotta be zegras for me and veleno probably ends up on the 3c and we get zadina zegras Berggren Maybe down the road at 35 for me beecher/tracey But have a feeling both can move into the first round with puistola if not I’d say we target kolyachonok/misyul or some other dman unless we move up which I can see happening put lavoie,Seider, And hoglander in What discussion? Rangers will pick kakko
  24. If/when he is one of our top 6 guys, put him in the top 6. Right now, i feel like he's #7 behind the guys i put on the top 2 lines. No reason to demote our 7th best forward to GR. Unless we are trying to lose?
  25. nyqvististhefuture

    2019 Draft

    I don’t that’s fine you don’t like the kid I think everyone’s severely overreacting and gonna regret it when he becomes a star ... as long as we take a turcotte/zegras Instead I’ll be ok so long as it’s not dach/cozens
