    Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM

    I can’t believe this is happening. I thought this was going to be a Rick Roll or prank for sure. I did a double-take on the date to make sure it wasn’t April Fools. Wow. I really didn’t think it would happen this quick. Super exciting day. Welcome home, Stevie! Also, first move: Dylan Larkin named as Captain.
  2. I 100% agree with this. At the very least they need to limit the teams in the lottery for the top picks. I thought too that they ought to limit year over year eligibility. I think this is spot on analysis and I really hope that they at least change this aspect in the next go around of the CBA, and I’m fully aware that it will probably work against us at that point. If you’re going to do a lottery, you can’t have playoff bubble teams jumping to get top picks, and you can’t have the same teams getting the top picks year after year.

    MSG can just book Phish to make extra money. Instant sellouts.

    Happy with 6th Pick?

    I’m just hoping for Byram. I feel like in spite of our lack of luck in the lottery, we’ve gotten lucky with players. Byram is a piece we could really use right now and was my number one choice if we didn’t get Hughes and Kakko.

    I’m more pissed that a team like Chicago could jump as high as they did and come out ahead of us and other clearly more needy teams. That to me is evidence of a broken system. I think the draft lottery or whatever system should be limited to the bottom 8 teams. Playoff bubble teams that were a few wins out of a playoff spot shouldn’t be picking 3rd.
  6. Yes. I’m still open minded about a lottery, but as we were discussing yesterday, I think whatever changes happen, the lottery or new system should be limited to the bottom 8 teams. There’s a lot more “need” there when you look at points in the season and it eliminates playoff bubble teams as said possibly having an off year from potentially shooting way up like Chicago. It really doesn’t seem right that a team like Chicago is picking ahead of us. That to me is evidence that this system needs tweaking at the very least.
  7. Hughes doesn’t look very excited.

    2019 Draft

    I really hope Byram is around at 6.
  9. Let’s hope Byram hangs around until 6.
  10. Don’t even put that out in the universe.
  11. Sounds like Holland wants to get the band back together.
  12. All of the nerves. More nervous about this than any game this year. Feels like the playoffs but crueler...

    The one area I haven’t followed as closely is goalie. How has Larsson been doing? Always tough to predict how a goalie will do, but does he look like a viable option in the next year or so?
