    2022 Draft / UFA

    I really wonder what Kenny would give up. Don't tell me SY and Holland haven't at least broached the subject. Time for a good old fashioned hoodwinking trade Stevie Y.

    Did Eddog not play last night? Looks like he wasn't in the lineup and I can't find any explanation.

    2022 Draft / UFA

    It's all good. I'm not a Zadina fan at all. Lalonde will be his last chance to improve as sometimes a new coach can tell him the same things he's already heard and finally listen. Pretty sure Stevie Y and staff know better if the kid's brain is functioning properly or some other reason he's not grasping things. I think there should be a DRW rule that states: If you draft a player and he sucks, you must trade a 1st round Holland/Edmonton player back to the Wings in exchange. Only fair.

    2022 Draft / UFA

    I'd rather see Eddog in GR playing major minutes as well. Also wouldn't mind seeing a Berggren- Andreasson- Sodorblom line leaving Veleno and Zadina in Detroit. Has to be the last chance for Zadina, but I'm just worried about the lack of ice time they're both going to get.

    Sweden beat the Swiss 3-2 with Simon Edvincible and Niederbach getting an assist each. I can't find highlights. Your op sucks. Help! This pic of Sebrango looks like he's about to eat an opposing forward https://www.tsn.ca/

    Steve Y conversation

    I enjoyed it, I mean what else is Stevie Y going to say to these softball questions? Pretty intimate setting with a smart, good looking lady and SY being SY. I thought he was pretty honest with his answers regarding Kasper, Hronek, Elmer, Cossa etc. Basic answer of 'their play will dictate when they arrive' but, he shows his optimistic side like a little kid, especially about Elmer.

    Wings Draft Marco Kasper 8th overall

    I watched quite a bit of it. The timing of the dev camp tourney and the end of the NHL playoffs gave me some perspective about Kasper. He plays playoff hockey all the time, fast, good vision and controls the puck and the flow really well. I didn't think he was going to be that good. Lombardi was great 3 on 3 but I wonder how the lack of space will translate playing 5 on 5. Getting bigger and stronger will help him as the kid has a nose for the net.

    I think the grind of Canadian JR hockey is a factor. Long bus rides etc. The States college hockey has a great system of learning, practicing all week and only playing games on weekends. Europe pro leagues have their Jr counterparts to pull from so in essence they are more organized than Cdn Jr's. In the end I think you're right that Cdn Jr hockey is harder for the off-ice deal and probably not as good as it once was. Talent is talent though and it might take a bit longer to develop going the Jr route. Just like Canadian kids playing baseball and football, they're losing so much development time because their climate will only allow them to play for so many months unlike Southern or Western U.S. 12 month sport seasons.

    He's a big kid, wants the puck, runs people over, drives the net. Reminds me of Bert with more projection for strength as he ages.

    2022 Draft / UFA

    Any clues where we could move up in the draft trading #40 & #52? I can't find an NHL draft position value chart anywhere.
