    if we seriously have a shot at Gusev, we need to get him here! Vegas has to give him up. it shouldn't even cost us Berggren. Hell,  Toronto had to give up a 1st just to dump Marleau. our 2020 2nd round pick (considering it should be in the 30's) should get him here. I'd be ok with that. we've got a ton of prospects, we woul dnt miss one 2nd.

    Okay, it's probably, at the very least, just as foolish for you to project him at a lower NHL point total. Given that two separate projections that do this type of stuff all the time put him above 50 points, I'm going to side with them over your assumption. He's worth a second round pick, easy.

    The roster always look crowded until the season starts and we consistently have 2-3 players injured
    Meh Fil is just there for AA to move back to wing. I like that Yzerman is definitively ending the center experiment with him. Tells me Yzerman has a clear vision of what the future should look like, and personally I think AA is better as a winger.
    Helm probably won't play much center either.

    This is actually a good idea. Clarkson only has 1 year left and they need the cap. Can't they just LTIR him thou?
    So 1st rounders can bust, but 2nd rounders like Berggren can't?
    Gusev is the best player in the KHL right now. Berggren doesn't even play full time on his team. One is a lot more of a sure thing than the other.
    People do follow it. It's a useful metric and gets updated every year.
    Shipachyov was predicted in 2017 to be a point per game player just like Panarin. And Vegas was touting him as their future 1st line C. It's a shame he never really got the chance honestly. Currently Shipachyov is projected to be a 70 pt NHL player.
    Is the translation factor an exact end all be all? No, it's just rough best guess at what a player will be like production wise in the NHL. It's formulated based on players switching leagues and their production levels.
    Would Gusev immediately step in and have an 80 pt season as projected? I don't know. But I would be thrilled with just a 50 or 60 pt season out of him. I ask myself: Would I trade Berggren for a 27 year old 50-60 point winger like Ryan Dzingel straight up? The answer for me is yes every time. Would you?
    A 27 year old could be on our roster for the next 8 years or more. I'm not concerned at all about age when a player is 27.
    Based on what? What do you not like about Shipachyov that makes you think he wouldn't have become a productive NHL player given the chance? Panarin might truly be far and away the better NHL player than Shipachyov, but I'm not gonna make that statement based on 3 NHL games played.

    He doesn't want a player on the roster for 8 years, that could potentially ruin our lottery chances. He wants a player who will make the team in 8 years, so we can trade him at the deadline. The 2028 draft is supposed to be the best since 2023.

    Your overvalue of picks is absurd. 2nd round picks are valuable, sure, but if you can get a 26 year old right-handed winger (fills a huge need) that has been one of the best players outside the NHL the past several seasons, you do it. Why wouldn't you? Because we might draft a player that might become as good as him in 3+ years from now? That's crazy...

    Could also be a move for when we, maybe, trade Howard at the deadline. In any case, it doesn't hurt. Pickard has good AHL numbers, won a Calder Cup.

    We’ll always have 2018
    r.i.p to the 2019 wings scouts who will get fired one day cause of this draft and don’t know it yet
    I can pretty tell you the chances of us landing star players from this draft outside of maybe seider are slim to none , 2018 blows this draft 
    we won’t pretend we’re better than the scouts , Fine but let’s not pretend we didn’t draft over positional need this year countless times instead of taking the guys with upside 
    right now I’m just expecting grewe to be a 3rd liner and another dman to be a 3rd pair guy I don’t see anyone with huge ceiling 
    we’d better f***en hope tuomisto and these other punks we took turn into steal or we’ll look back in a few years and look back and laugh at the guys we passed on in disbelief 
     
    this is 2017 again with like Rasmussen and other guys .... im not a fan of the draft at all , I’ll root for the kids and hope every kids a star but I’m not gonna count on it

    ducks 
    Carolina
    Kings 
    devils
    pretty much anyone but us
     
    After this draft I’m hardly excited about the 2020 draft anymore , only thing that can save us is a lottery pick as well as the fact that we drafted like 6-7 dmen so yzerman should stfu and stop exaggerating with drafting for need over best player available cause he certainly didn’t do that this year  
    Oh that’s nonsense though cause we could have got puistola and other studs from 54-66 and instead blew it for s***s and giggles cause of our d need ... Brett leason was there as well , just a f***en disaster

    Stick to your guns, I like it. They had their eyes on this kid and didn't want to let him go. Must have seen something special if they were willing to take him this high. From everything I've read about him, seems like he is a very safe pick and the lowest he projects is top 4 defensive defensemen with offensive potential. A shutdown guy who has top back skating speed and can keep up with the rush. Oh, and he rarely makes mistakes or lapses on defense. Oh, and he has a good first pass.

    A lot about Zadina will depend on how hard he works this off-season and how he looks in the preseason. There's a chance he could be up come October.

    Last year, we drafted best player available, ignoring need.  This year we did the opposite.  Oh how  I wish we could reverse the two.

    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.
