this is our choice on the mock draft III on nhl
nick bjugstad,temmu pulkkinen,vladimir tarasenko

my favorite choice :
1-Jarred Tinordi 6'6 205 solide defense captain usa-18 56gp 5 goals 8 assists 95 penalty minutes

2-Dylan Mcllrath 6'4 212 another solid defense 65 gp 7 goals 17 assists 169 penalty minutes ,but he will probably leave within the first 15...

3-Brock Nelson 6'3 205 power forward in high school 31 gp 53 goals 42 assists

4-Kirill Kabanov 6'3 176 moncton 22gp 10g 13 assists

5-Emerson Etem but he will probaly leave in the first 15 too ...

http://www.nhl.com/i...m?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.

RIP BOB PROBERT #24

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

My wish list: (based both on how much I want the Red Wings to draft them and the chance they'll still be around at the 21st pick)

1. Jon Merrill
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
13. Evgeni Kuznetsov
14. Calle Jarnkrok
15. Ludwig Rensfeldt

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
