    2020 Draft Thread

    I don't think the Devils would trade 7 and 17, but the Ducks could be willing to trade 6 and 31, if they really want to get their guy at 4. I'd consider the Ducks trade, if there were multiple players I really like, and I'd definitely do the Devils trade. Getting another top 20 pick in this draft would be huge for the Red Wings. I'm hoping Yzerman can weaponize some of that cap space before the draft, and acquire another late 1st round pick. Vancouver would be a prime candidate with Eriksson, but I don't think they have their 1st this year, do they?

    You're forgetting someone... You're going to want to take that back, when he drops to us at 4...

    One of the best signings ever

    Yeah, guy's a clown, and like most clowns, he can be funny from time to time, but for the most part, he's annoying as s*** (insufferable). Suspension after suspension, and he still doesn't get it. It's a sad reality that a lot of people are so miserable in real life, that they go on the internet to try to bring others down with them...

    Yeah, I'm leaning Raymond at four, unless one of LA or Ottawa take Drysdale, and Stutzle drops to us...

    It's a very big deal. I'm not saying we should ever pick a player solely because of handedness, but it should definitely weigh in the final decision.

    So do you still think Rasmussen is better than / has a higher ceiling than Veleno?

    So do you still think Rasmussen tops out as a 4th line center?

    LOL you get so mad. Same way you do on Twitter. It's not healthy... I've never said anything to indicate I was ever that high on Hirose, but you keep doing you. Right. Fabbri won't be here in a few years... Got it...

    LOL what words have I put in your mouth? Do you really want me to pull up your Twitter posts from 8 months ago? You were saying it was a nothing trade. Fabbri will just get injured, or end up back in Europe. Maybe you weren't pissed, but only because de la Rose sucks. If we gave up a mid level prospect, like Regula, or a mid round pick, you would have been pissed for sure... Perlini absolutely did have upside. It didn't work out. It happens. I made a suggestion on how we could possibly acquire a top tier NHL defenseman. Regardless whether or not you agree, that is what we need. What we don't need is more average defensive prospects with little chance to make any sort of impact at the NHL level. But again, it he could be had for little to nothing (Hirose), by all means...

    It's actually impressive how often you misrepresent someone's point / put words in their mouth... I've never really been "high on Hirose". I was against trading him because his value is probably somewhere in the neighborhood of a 5th round pick. He's a dime a dozen player. I'd still prefer the player over the late pick. I've also never been "high on Carlsson". I just don't see the point in trading for another depth defenseman. But if you think he could be had for a mid tier prospect, by all means. It's funny though that you're advocating for such a trade when you were probably the only person that was immediately upset with the Fabbri and Perlini trades...

    Like? Dislike? Love? Garbage? What??? I just don't think it's fair value. Nor do I think Chicago would have much interest in Hirose. Hirose started out hot, but I doubt he'll ever be anything more than a 3rd line depth winger on a mediocre team. If you think it's fair value, you mustn't think too highly of Carlsson. What's the point in trading for another depth defenseman? We have a ton of depth at every position. We need elite talent. Carlsson likely isn't that...

    After all these years of you clamoring for picks over players, NOW is the time you're going use logic?... You may be right that Tampa would lock up Sergachev, at all cost, but it's worth the phone call at least. If BriseBois says he'll match any offer sheet, then you know he'll have to offload a bad contract or two. Either way, I hope Yzerman explores every possibility to acquire assets (picks / prospects / young players)... Half of those guys are righties, and the other half probably won't ever make it. Either way, I'm not saying that Chicago wouldn't trade Carlsson, but it would certainly cost more than Hirose. Would you trade a 2020 2nd round pick? Let me guess... No? Too much?...

    So, let me get this straight... You don't think there's any way Tampa would ever part with Sergachev, even for next year's top 10, maybe top 5 pick. But you think Chicago would part with Carlsson for Taro Hirose? Also, saying that Chicago are "stacked at d", may be a little bit of an overstatement...

    Uh oh. 91 is butthurt over a slight against Ras again... You also said this a few days ago... So, which is it? Um because he was constantly injured for two straight seasons, finally got healthy last season, and put up great numbers in the AHL (25 points in 32 games) and NHL (7 points in 10 games) as a 20 year old... He's three months older than Zadina, who most (outside of two people) think is going to be a legit top six, likely top line winger... Better question, how is it that you don't think that qualifies as finally emerging? Since when is saying "likely", "sealing one's fate"?... I don't think Rasmussen will be anything more than a 2nd line winger / 3rd line center. I think Vilardi could be a top line winger / 2nd line center. In hindsight, Rasmussen playing in the NHL was probably a mistake. He probably would have benefitted more spending another season dominating the WHL. Vilardi was also (more so) riddled with injuries. If it weren't for all his set backs, he might have played this past season in the NHL. Who knows...

    Tampa already have two elite / high end top four left defensemen, in Hedman and McDonagh, locked up for the next six years. Sergachev is lower in the depth chart than he should be. I don't think he's untouchable. If Tampa feel like they can get some good pieces in return, they might pull the trigger. Or they may not have much of an option, if an offer sheet is signed. I doubt it happens, but it's definitely an avenue worth exploring in my opinion. It doesn't even necessarily need to be Sergachev. I'd just like to see Yzerman get aggressive and acquire a young, highly skilled offensive defenseman to play on the left side with Hronek / Seider.
