    Watched it (finally) last night.  Really, really good.  A lot of good insight into how tight that team was off the ice.  Loved it when Mac explained the difference between a sucker punch and getting cold cocked.  Hilarious.
    If I had one very minor "I would have liked more" from this, I would have liked to have more insight from Stevie on his perspective as the Captain and how he dealt with their style of play, speaking very little (if at all) English when they first arrived and how this effected how they communicated, how he dealt with the perception among the other teammates that "Russians were bad for NHL hockey", etc.  However, top to bottom a outstanding film.
    Yes!  I definitely got the impression that Kozlov had a major edge to him.

    I just talked to a friend of mine who went to development camp not an hour ago.
    He said Kuffner, Veleno, and Hirose were noticeably much better than the rest of the team. Not surprised about Kuffner and Hirose as they're already older guys with NHL time, but that was encouraging to hear about Veleno.
    He also mentioned Adams, Grewe, Seider, and Berggren as guys who looked very promising.

    Holland reads this board. All those posts about "Jurco shouldn't be on the fourth line, if he played with a McD center he'd have like 1000 points" he's starting to realize were true. He's studying. Learning. Evolving.

    Hockeymom1960 reacted to krsmith17 in 2019 Draft   
    I just don't understand the talk on Seider being a "reach". Based on what? Seider may have been a reach on other draft boards, but he clearly wasn't a "reach" to Yzerman, or at least one other general manager in the top 10.
    Sure it's possible that Seider develops into a DeKeyser. Very unlikely in my opinion, but possible... It's also possible that Zegras develops into a Sam Bennett, or Cozens develops into a Jake Virtanen. None of these guys are a guarantee to become anything. I choose to believe that Yzerman has half a clue of what he's doing, and he truly did see something in this kid that few others seen.
    I'll admit that I wanted Zegras or Cozens at 6, but I'm not going to pretend I know better than Yzerman or any of the scouts in the Red Wings organization. I'm happy with the pick, and it'll be interesting to see how it plays put.
    I'm confused about what you're WTFing about? Eating? Yes, professional athletes have very strict diets and most teams in the NHL have a team nutritionist. Lisa McDowell is the Red Wings nutritionist, and believe it or not, all of these kids take cooking classes and learn what foods they should and shouldn't be eating. It's actually a very important part of development camp, that starts tomorrow...

    I am actually really happy with this draft.
     
    I think we really made large strides in improving our D moving forward.
    I am a huge fan of the Seider pick. I think he is going to turn out to be a stud.
    Pair him with Cholowski and put McIsaac with Hronek and we have a super solid top 4 going forward.
     
    Tuomisto and Johansson could end up in the mix for roster spots down the road as well.
    The Berglund and Moore have filled our D cupboard and have size and potential.
     
     
    As for the forwards I am a HUGE fan of the Grewe pick (models his game after Marchand).
    Mastrosimone seems to be a slick player as well that I have high hopes for.
    Soderblom looks like a beast.
    Adding Phillips and Tyutyayev add more depth at F in our system.
     
    And finally, adding Gylander ( a 6'5" goalie) is never a bad thing to do.
     
     
    Just my 2 cents.
     
     
    Cheers

    Once you get past the shock of, "that's not what anyone was expecting", and look into some of these guys, I'm actually really happy with what I'm seeing. Of course, none of that matters if none of them pan out to meet our high expectations.
