    Wings fans should be deliriously happy. I certainly am.
    Why? Because the impossible dream seems to have been realized; YzerMADMAN seems to have pulled a gem from each of the past three drafts.
    1. RAYMOND
    Raymond is a monster – and this isn't even his final form. He's still...

    As I've said before, he's going to bulk up. He's going to get stronger, quicker, faster, more confident. When the rest of his body catches up to his brain and eyes and hands...look out.
    "Fluke?"
    Not really. The eye test, the underlying numbers, and his pre-NHL body of work all tell us he's this good (though, of course, he's probably not a legit 82-point player right now). Even so, I can barely believe he's been this good this soon.
    Dude leads all rookies in points and goals and +/-. 14 points through his first 13 NHL games. 14 points! FOURTEEN!
    "OK, yeah, but what about all NHL skaters, not just rookies?"
    Dude's tied for 6th in the league in points. At 19 years old. (Turns 20 in late March.)
    We needed a Pettersson/Pastrnak-tier forward. It appears we found one. (Hence needed.) F***ing pinch me.
    2. SEIDER
    Seider's been exactly the player we all know he is. The only question was point production. As with Raymond, we knew the production would come...just not this much this soon. Dude's 3 points off from leading all defensemen in points.
    "Fluke?"
    Nah. Like I said, he's been exactly the player we all know he is. He's not, like, riding an unsustainable shooting percentage. His production isn't tied to an Ovechkin/McDavid-tier. I don't think he's really catching teams off-guard.
    We badly needed a defenseman you could mention in the same breath as Hedman. We found one, and quite possibly two...
    3. EDVINSSON
    One of Edvinsson's teammates – a vet, I think – recently said Edvinsson's the best defenseman he's ever played with. In explaining this, he said something to the effect of "Dahlin was amazing. But Edvinsson is something else."
    Nuff said.

    This, except every team and GM and player.
    This team – with Vrana – is capable of ruining a top seed's season in the first round. It has that f***-you energy.

    It's utterly surreal.
    Feels a bit like 20 years ago, when we were losing key vets and things were getting stale and we were all wondering what the hell we were gonna do...and then Datsyuk and Zetterberg just kinda happened.
