    Wings fans should be deliriously happy. I certainly am. Why? Because the impossible dream seems to have been realized; YzerMADMAN seems to have pulled a gem from each of the past three drafts. 1. RAYMOND Raymond is a monster – and this isn't even his final form. He's still... As I've said before, he's going to bulk up. He's going to get stronger, quicker, faster, more confident. When the rest of his body catches up to his brain and eyes and hands...look out. "Fluke?" Not really. The eye test, the underlying numbers, and his pre-NHL body of work all tell us he's this good (though, of course, he's probably not a legit 82-point player right now). Even so, I can barely believe he's been this good this soon. Dude leads all rookies in points and goals and +/-. 14 points through his first 13 NHL games. 14 points! FOURTEEN! "OK, yeah, but what about all NHL skaters, not just rookies?" Dude's tied for 6th in the league in points. At 19 years old. (Turns 20 in late March.) We needed a Pettersson/Pastrnak-tier forward. It appears we found one. (Hence needed.) F***ing pinch me. 2. SEIDER Seider's been exactly the player we all know he is. The only question was point production. As with Raymond, we knew the production would come...just not this much this soon. Dude's 3 points off from leading all defensemen in points. "Fluke?" Nah. Like I said, he's been exactly the player we all know he is. He's not, like, riding an unsustainable shooting percentage. His production isn't tied to an Ovechkin/McDavid-tier. I don't think he's really catching teams off-guard. We badly needed a defenseman you could mention in the same breath as Hedman. We found one, and quite possibly two... 3. EDVINSSON One of Edvinsson's teammates – a vet, I think – recently said Edvinsson's the best defenseman he's ever played with. In explaining this, he said something to the effect of "Dahlin was amazing. But Edvinsson is something else." Nuff said.

    In all honesty, I've been avoiding posting because I don't wanna jinx the run Raymond and Seider are on.

    I came here from hfboards because that place was becoming a wasteland and someone recommended this place but this place is no better. A lot of horrible opinions here maybe the worst ive seen.

    We have to keep Leddy, next years free agent market is thin(Zadorov seems like one of a few) and we have to get rid of Staal and DDK. So Leddy, Edvinsson, Oesterle + FA for the left side with McIsaac and Johansson hopefully pushing from GR. I´m totally fine with our three RHD, the combo of Seider, Hronek und Lindström is good already although they only have a combined 239 games of NHL experience and they will only get better.

    This, except every team and GM and player. This team – with Vrana – is capable of ruining a top seed's season in the first round. It has that f***-you energy.

    I'm getting progressively more juiced about this guy. Like, these aren't just "he's big and playing against 17 year old goals". He's a very consistent goal scoring threat against the best professional teams in Europe. He's the real deal.

    Leddy reminds me of Mike Green. He can get the puck up ice, but I won't be sad to trade him anymore. Even if we only get a 2nd for him, we basically got to rent him for a half season at no cost. Think about it like this: We brought in Leddy to babysit Seider in his first season. But just 10-15 games in Seider was so good we re-assigned the kid to babysit Dekeyser. Leddy is now expendable, and Seider is definitely getting the Calder.

    Kadri is a turd and gets suspended too frequently. His next suspension will probably be 41 games as a repeat offender.

    Trading Leddy, Fabbri, Hronek, Ras and Zadina for four 3rds and one 2nd would be awful imho. What can you hope to get out of that? One player that makes it to the NHL? If we were to trade all those guys I would much rather see Stevie making hockey trades. The De La Rose into Fabbri kind of trades.

    I read this about Edvinsson recently. It was a translation of a Swedish article on Malik's blog (see:https://themalikreport.com/2021/11/08/roughly-translated-via-icehockeygifs-simon-edvinsson-speaks-with-rakapuckars-henrik-lehman) "He’s been praised by [teammate] Ryan Lasch, by most experts, and when I spoke with Dan Cleary, the Detroit Red Wings’ Assistant Director of Player Development last week, the NHL veteran said this with a smile about the successful young Swede: “Take the opportunity to enjoy him, there’s not a chance that he’ll be here for any longer than this season.”

    I'm not talking about an elite 1C, but a platoon 1C to complement Larkin. I'm pleasantly surprised with his resurgence... if we had another one of him or even a Larkin-light we'd be in good shape at C. Then the rest of our centers could fight for 3rd and 4th line duty or spots on the wing.

    Au contraire. Hronek has been a new man since the healthy scratch. Aces move by J-Coach

    Yawn...can we get back to talking about things we ACTUALLY think now? This entire discussion is being conducted in bad faith. It's like watching Skip Bayless debate Shannon Sharpe about something neither of them care about. #phony
