    If Holland drafted Hughes last year: Wings would have a better player Subsequently would have drafted a better player this year Yzerman would already have a full year evaluating the team Subsequently would have made better FA/trade moves Holland would be dead Subsequently Edmonton would be worse and get the #1OA again You'd be in prison Subsequently we'd have a brighter, safer world in which to raise our children Everybody wins!

    The look of a young man who just realized his paychecks are going to be less than 1/10th of what they were last year...

    It is. Beastiality is a crime, you're going to jail. Plus her fat ass is way out of proportion compared to her skinny legs. 4/10 at best.
  4. it sounds like you're being sarcastic, but it's actually true. I bought a biometric passport washing machine just to teach him a lesson. I bet he won't be bothering us anymore. You're welcome.

    Typical male ignorance. In the future, all spiders will have jobs as Bindi's jewelry.

    Howard = Average

    Very dumb for doing so at the start of what was probably his best season. It's like a guy unloading in his pants trying to convince the girl he was smart because it was going to happen eventually anyway. What are you talking about, Bishop just had his best year and probably should have won the Vezina. Gibson's a stud. Didn't have the greatest year, but over the last several he's been elite.

    Science is getting closer and closer to making artificial sperm from stem cells. Soon enough males will no longer be required for reproduction. Sayonara Y chromosome, it was nice knowing you. The future is female. Face your obsolescence with dignity.

    Cap era: those three plus Zetterberg. Including pre-cap, Yzerman, Feds, Shanny, Hasek, and Cujo all did in at least one year.

    Nothing flawed about it at all. Literally all it means is that he went against expectations. Whatever negative connotations you want to attach to that is your issue.

    Well, duh. No one is ever a reach from the perspective of the person making the pick. You can respect Yzerman's opinion and still acknowledge that it was significantly different than the norm. Also, in the final rankings from the popular lists, Seider's average ranking was 17th. 10 out of 14 (not counting NHLCS due to lack of combined list) had him between 9 and 18. I know you're having fun thinking you were one of the few believers in Seider, but the fact is you were right in line with the prevailing opinion. Yzerman didn't validate your opinion, he said you were wrong.

    Except it wasn't just the media. ISS had him at #17. NHLCS had him as #6 Euro skater (and 4th Euro defenseman). McKenzie's list is derived from polling NHL scouts and had him #16. "Reach" just means going against the prevailing opinion. You seem to think it means people think he's a bad player. It doesn't and no one thought that (except maybe Scott Wheeler). Doesn't even necessarily mean it's a bad pick. Like I said in the draft thread, it's not that big a difference. It's not like everyone else had him going in the 4th round. Every list has a player or three ranked a bit different than the "norm". Reaching with a high pick, I think it's a little more important to be right, but even if he's a complete bust I wouldn't say it would make it that much worse. Hindsight means only so much when looking at a single pick. ... 4. Filip Forsberg, Right Wing, Leksands-Allsvenskan ... 23. Slater Koekkoek, Defense, Peterborough-OHL

    Security only buys you so much. Hard to imagine a 25yo being so concerned for their future that they'd give you a discount for longer term, while at the same time being unconcerned enough not to worry about their ability to get another contract after. From their perspective, a 3 year contract is the best option. The longer you go over that, the closer you'll need to be to what they think they could make as UFAs. Mantha and AA at least could get $5M for a short-term deal, you're not getting 8 years at that rate unless they really want to be here.

    The average fan is never going to look at anything more than stat lines and other people's rankings. And obviously there are a lot more people covering NA teams and prospects, and it's much easier to find games to watch, so obviously there's going to be more complete information about more top NA prospects, particularly compared to the lower level hockey countries in Europe. The fact that Seider had as much buzz as he did coming from Germany and putting up no stats kind of works against your point. You praise the depth of the Dobber Prospects analysis, but they ranked Seider in the same range as pretty much everyone else...still behind all the "consensus" top guys. Pronman had him down in the 20s, but he also had Broberg at #9, so clearly his scoring in Europe had nothing to do with it. Just a fairly small difference in opinion, same as what happens outside the top few picks every year. Wings fans, or at least Yzerman fans, seem to have this desperation to prove to themselves that Seider was some genius pick; that Yzerman didn't reach; that the rest of the hockey world is just stupid. It's not only a grossly inaccurate depiction of what other people actually thought about Seider (which is that he's a really good player with high-end potential, but that there were maybe another 10 kids, give or take a few, who were more likely to turn out better), but it's also creating so much ridiculous hype around him that half the fan base is going to hate him if he turns out to be a Hampus Lindholm-level player.
