    2020 Draft Thread

    If there is no Stützle or Byfield available, I´m fine with Rossi, probably even prefer him over Byfield. You are as big as you play, Brad Marchand is a nice example of that, as is Big E...

    https://www.mlive.com/redwings/2020/07/saginaw-spirit-sign-detroit-red-wings-prospect-albin-grewe.html I like that move, Grewe might be a real nice Bert-like addition in a few years. If he shows what he promises and Det signs him to an entry level contract while he´s playing in Saginaw, could we still send him to GR or Ras-like NHL or OHL?

    2020 Draft Thread

    I know it will be unlikely to get him... but it´s the channel Draft dynasty which is very interesting. He´s doing some proper evaluation of pretty much all possible 1st round picks, comparing and ranking them. I just watched 1,5 hours of his reviews...

    2020 Offseason

    as krs stated, Hronek is 22, Bowey 25, but it´s not just the age, I just think Bowey has already hit his ceiling and Hronek has still a gear left. All Bowie can add to his toolbox is experience, but I don´t want the Wings being the team giving him that, I would prefer younger players with more upside in his spot.

    2020 Offseason

    I guess it´s after 5 years of pro hockey (AHL,Europe,NHL) for a defenseman before you really know what you have. Take Bowey as example, 5 years, 264 games of AHL and NHL combined and now we know we have a player with no future and no real trade value. Hronek is another one, 5 years, 259 games of AHL,Europe,NHL combined and now we know we have at least a good 2nd pair D with room to grow.

    keep Biega as 7th dman and send Bowey down. Bowey will never have "high" trade value, if someone claims him, so be it, I wouldn´t shed a tear.

    I wouldn´t see Green as a plug, more as a veteran presence. Our future RD with Seider,Hronek and Lindström is very promising, but also very young. Green for another 2/3 of a season sounds like a good thing to me, he doesn´t have to move and can finish his career after next season and we have a mentor kind of player for ~50 games and a pick at the deadline. Cholowski isn´t ready yet and might need another half season in GR . Biega as the 7th D and Bowey, he is a guy with all the tools and no clue how to use them, send to somewhere else. That way Green looks like a good fit, depending on what Yzerman wants and how the draft plays out of course

Seider is currently on the ice training with Adler Mannheim in Germany, as they prepare for the season."

    2020 Offseason

    Gilbert Brule , Derick Brassard , Sam Gagner , Nikita Filatov , Oliver Ekman-Larsson , Brett Connolly , Mika Zibanejad , Hampus Lindholm , Sean Monahan , Jake Virtanen , Pavel Zacha , Matthew Tkachuk , Cody Glass something to think about in that endless Zadina debate... the Sergachev idea is likeable, but would Yzerman do that? He was in Tampa and it´s a bit of a rude move. Even if we are lucky, drafting goalies now will give us a goalie in 5-7 years, unless it´s a high pick like Askarov and even he would need at least 2-3 years to become a starter. We need better goaltending now, so going hard after one of them looks like a good idea.
