    I love the Seider pick! Watch that guy being interviewed he's very sharp, self-aware, and seemingly willing to be a team guy. The argument about where he should have been picked is based on mock drafts... remember these guys aren't scouts they just play them on TV.

    If we were to all post a list of the 10 best players in the NHL last year, the combined list could easily be 20-30 names. If we can't agree on how to judge players in the same league based on hindsight, how much should we be upset about some disagreement on how a bunch of 17/18 yo kids playing in many different leagues all over the world will turn out 5-6 years from now? Every guy we could have picked had someone who didn't think he should go that high, and all of Zegras, Cozens, Caufiled, and Boldy were ranked lower than Seider by at least one person. Yes, it was a reach, but not a particularly big one. No big deal, no matter how it turns out.

    Out of all the first round picks, ours had the nicest head of lettuce. That’s got to count for something.

    Honestly, I really like the pick. I like it because I love the player, yes, but I also like it because Yzerman knows how important this pick is and you could argue he had every reason in the world not to select Seider if he wasn't fully 100% sure that he's His Guy. Passing on all those good forwards that were available, including Cozens -- who would seem to fit Yzerman's drafting history to a T -- means he's beyond sold on Seider. That, to me, is very exciting. Seider's absolute ceiling is something like a Victor Hedman monster 1D. You know who has unique insight into Hedman himself and, one would assume, defense prospects in that general mold? Steve Yzerman. Steve Yzerman wants a Hedman and Wings fans have been wet-dreaming about finding a Red Wings version of Hedman for the better part of a decade. No one had Chicago taking Dach, so the fact that E X P E R T S are questioning the pick means nothing to me. Though, if we're going to defer to E X P E R T S, Craig Button and some others had Seider going only a few spots after we took him. So I'm not sure you can even call it a true stretch pick. Maybe to E X P E R T S who didn't even consider the possibility that he could go as high as 6th, but many of the E X P E R T S live in their own self-constructed realities, which is why they get so many picks wrong every year. What we were (and weren't) hearing about Seider over the course of the past year doesn't really have any bearing on what our scouts and GM think of Seider.

    I share the same thoughts. Few others: - I agree with Brian Burke (yuk!). I think they the lottery should have a cut off point. Somewhere between 6 and 10. No team finishing 17 - 21 should have any shot at the lottery - If the current system is not amended I'd rather go back to the old "you draft where you finish" format. I have way more tolerance for watching an already bad team deliberately lose than I do watching Chicago, Carolina, or Philly jumping 12 spots into the top 3. - MUST HAVE RADIUS CLAUSE: If you have won a cup within the last 5 years, no moving into the top three. If you have drafted top 3 within the last 3 years, no top three for you this year UNLESS you finished bottom 5 in the standing.

    Absolutely. No way that gets it done though. Maybe. I think Nylander is overrated though, and a team with Matthews, Tavares and Marner should be able to afford to trade Nylander for help on the back end... I hope this whole situation blows up in Dubas' face though... F*** the Leafs...

    He's kinda got that creepy "felt cute, might invade Poland later" German smile Strong Jaw, add that to the list of things I like about him Don't normally like bow ties, but somehow it seems to work with a hockey jersey Meme potential image Have we talked about how the Germans have underrated Jerseys yet? Winning the German league cup This one is from the future as he walks to accept the 2020 Norris Trophy I figure if I humanize him enough everyone will have to love him > Swap Chychrun for Cholowski and afterthought Hronek > Booo Chychrun is better than Cholowski! > Afterthought Hronek turns out better than both > Prospects are chaos

    This is why I trust and therefore defer to the experts/scouts. A reach is a reach based on what? Where Corey Pronman told you a guy should go? f*** Corey Pronman. If Yzerman took Raphael Lavoie at #6 overall, my opinion would be damn this Lavoie kid must be a lot better than anyone realized. Not "Yzerman isn't folowing BPA! What a retard"

    Saw someone post on reddit "Next year we get his brother Deepin." I find that joke alone makes the pick worth it.

    Believe me you will love this pick down the road: Here is a quote from an european scouting service on Seider: We think Moritz Seider is the safest bet to be a solid contributor in the NHL out of the pool of defensemen available in Europe this year, that’s why he has been the highest ranked defenseman on our list since last season. In fact, we have been scouting him for three years now and everything we have seen both in terms of capabilities and projection suggests to us he will be at least an NHL top-4 defenseman for a long time.

    The more I think about it, the more I'm so glad we finally have a top defense prospect. After the initial shock went away, I'm really happy with this pick.

    The look on his face was absolutely priceless. I love it.

    I'll add this to it : Probably the reason Yzerman pulled the trigger without trading up.
