http://www.nhl.com/ice/page.htm?id=62943..... theres the link for anyone interested in reading the latest mocks at NHL.

The wings draft on pure skill a lot of the time and this time last year scouts were saying Macfarland might be going up in the top 5 with Hall and Seguin. Most of these drafts have Macfarland going right around when the wings pick and I would be extremely happy if the wings could pick him up. If he gets his act together he could be the steal of this draft along with kabanov. He has some edge to his game as well which would be nice to get in here. Potential number one center in the future.

Trading up a couple spots for someone like Mcilrath would be nice but I don't see Kenny doing it so I doubt we can get him. Watson would b e a sweet pick up as well but he might be going just a bit before the wings pick so we'll see. I also like the idea of Howden, a big, physical goal scorer.

I really hope we don't go Russian in the first round, call me a euro hater whatever, I would much rather have people that won't have the risk of fleeing to the KHL.

That is a legitimate concern yes.

My only personal opinion on the draft is that the Wings take a player that they can fast-track (relatively speaking) to the NHL. I get bored waiting for these prospects to mature.

I think you getting bored is definitely the first thing Kenny thinks before drafting a player.

He's just saying what he wants teh wings to do this draft. No reason to get snappy.

And seeing Finnish wing reply reminded me that I don't want that Pulkinen or whatever his name is either. 5'11 European, no thanks.

pulkkinen would be great in my opinion. He was great at the under 18's this year.

:thumbup:

Thats the thing, he performed well at the u18's so he seems great. He's like the 17th ranked European skater so I would not be happy with that when there is 17 Europeans ranked higher and only about 3 will be off of the board by then probably.

Macfarland is compared to Brendan Morrow, if he's half the warrior Morrow is then he's worth our pick.

IF...for whatever insane reason, we were to trade down (to get an added pick in a later round or something) I would want to see the Wings grab Kabanov. If we managed to trade up, which I doubt, I would want Brandon Gormley. Call me a homer, but I wanna see a Moncton boy playing in the Red and White. :)

I would not get your hopes up for Gormley my friend. We would have to trade into the top 5 to get him and if we were to trade up that far I would just trade high enough to get Gudbranson.

Yeah, I know that one's more a pipe dream than anything. Fun to dream though. :D

2. Mark Pysyk

3. Nick Bjugstad

4. Derek Forbort

5. Kirill Kabanov

6. Jack Campbell

7. Alexander Burmistrov

8. Austin Watson

9. Dylan McIlrath

10. Emerson Etem

11. Jeff Skinner

12. John McFarland

Not a bad list at all. I doubt even if campbell is around that the wings will draft him, we're fairly stacked at goalie for a while. I tihnk if somehow Etem slips he could be a really slick goal scorer. I still really want Watson as well but right now its looking like Macfarland has a high chance at being around when we pick and he is one of the most skilled guys in the draft.

I mean, if you're getting Brendan Morrow comparisons what isn't there to love about a guy haha

He may have played for Moncton in the Q, but make no mistake... he's an Islander, from Kings County PEI. Therefore, he's not a "Moncton boy" but I agree he'd be a great pick...

Yup Mill River area here. I think the maritime members of LGW should have a conference sometime... maybe get some scouting, draft plans, trades etc. done for Kenny and the boys. LOL

So today on the chat with Jim Nill I submitted a question.

my comment: Mr. Nill, I would like to know your opinion on a couple of players. If you spoke with Kabanov at the combine how did he come off to you, do you feel he will slide as far as they are projecting? Also what do you think his skill level is because even if he has some character issues, I recall a member of the wings org saying "You can't teach talent, everything else can be worked on."

his response: Yes, we have interviewed Kiril. He is a very skilled player and you are definitely correct in that you can't teach talent. It will be interesting to see where he falls in draft. He is on our radar screen.

"It will be interesting to see where he falls in draft." I hope they see the talent he has and think they can change him so they send out smokescreens up to the draft and maybe trade up in the second rd to get him.

Brock Nelson?? The guy sounds like an enforcer through and through.

Agreed. Now if he looked like this...

BrockSamson.jpg

...even better. You just know that Brock Samson would have been the greatest enforcer ever & he already has the hockey hair for the role.
