    It 100% depends on whether Uncle Gary wants you to win. The only answer. 
    I think Wings travel in the Western Conf probably wrenched a few cups away from them.

    Hey man, scoring wingers are really hard to come by. Yzerman could only add three of them (and their 51 goals) this season for a cost of a 1st, some shiddy players, and some cash. Better to blow draft picks on them tbh

    If you read through the comments he admits that if the Wings picked Benson over Danielson that they'd probably be #1 on his list. LOL

    Scott Wheeler of The Athletic has been working his way through ranking the prospect pools from each NHL team. Today the Red Wings landed at #2.
    1. Edvinsson
    2. ASP
    3. Kasper
    4. Danielson
    5. Cossa
    6. Augustine
    7. Mazur
    8. Wallinder
    9. Buchelnikov
    10. Sodorblom
    11. Buium
    12. Gibson
    13. Dower Nilsson
    14. Lombardi
    15. Anton Johansson
    Couple of things to note. Two of our best prospects (Berggren and Albert Johansson) aged out of his rankings, so we're actually in a better position even than his rankings would suggest. Also, Wheeler is famous for not liking Red Wings drafts. He always thinks we should take some tiny winger (Perfetti, Savoie, Benson) and we never do. So then he ranks our draft badly because we didn't. He's on record as really really not liking our picks. So for him to rank us this high is an acknowledgment of how good we really are, and also an indication that other evaluators may even be higher on our prospects than he is.

    I actually kinda wish they'd trade him. Tnias Mathurin is clearly AHL ready and Edvinsson is blocking him. If Shawn Horcroff isn't careful AHL ready guys like Mathurin, Jack Phelan, and Larry Keenan will get sick of being held back and start requesting trades.
    Hey hey ho ho Simon Edvinsson's got to go!!!! Hey hey ho ho Simon Edvinsson's got to go!!!!

    I genuinely think that the hockey media has owned the narrative forever, and they don't know s***, and that's why nobody knows how to make sense of teams like the Wings. I was listening to a podcast the other day and Max Bultman (and other people from the Athletic) were debating something and Max offhandedly mentioned that maybe having a McDavid type player is actually bad for team building and those other dorks couldn't scoff hard enough. Like, how DARE he impune the notion that superstars aren't all they're cracked up to be. The entire calculus for hockey media is "You've got stars and you shoot alot, ipso facto you're a contender". Except  there are tons of examples of that not working. Worse, there are almost zero counter narratives in media. I give Jared Keeso a lot of credit for this. He's the only guy talking about hockey who dares say something like "maybe giving a s*** and not being a p*ssy matters more than being pretty". There are several episodes of "Shoresy" devoted to it. But his show is "fiction" so nobody runs with it.
    I'd give anything to see hockey media address a few of these questions:
    If star power matters so much why do even the most legendary players (think Lidstrom) only win a few times in their careers? If statistical modeling can only tell us what we already know (Colorado is good) but not what we don't know (Vancouver is GOING to be better than you think) what value does it really have? If players matter so much why does a team like Vancouver go from terrible to exceptional from year to year with almost no change in personnel? If puck possesson matters so much why do GMs and coaches not just load up their teams with the best possession players they can get? If the draft lottery is such a game changer why haven't Edmonton and Toronto even won a conference title? Why doesn't Buffalo suck? Why is New Jersey regressing as they put more lottery picks into their lineups. IMO these are all super interesting questions that I'd love to read articles about, but nobody working in the hockey media will even ask the questions. Instead we get "Who's the most stylish Maple Leaf".

    Don't know if anyone is following but Whitney tweeted that Brady is unhappy in Ottawa and wants out, and may actually be on the market.
    I kinda thought yea yea sure
    But now Renaud Lavoie is confirming what Whitney said...
    It's believed Keith Tkachuk is in his sons ear about this, just like he was with Matt in Calgary.
    And I just want to say bravo Ottawa. I love this for your team, and the family Tkachuk. God bless your hearts.
