he's project to be a shutdown third liner at the very least, obviously the wings see top 6 potential in him

I trust them but think they're dreaming.

I am hearing he is along the mold of Abdelkader

Nice to waste a 21st overall on another abdelkader :thumbdown:

Do we still trust in Ken Holland? There has got to be a method to his madness....

i hate this pick the more i think about it

Let's leave the "expert" work up to Nill, Hakan, and Holland people... They obviously know what they're doing and you're all bickering like a bunch of 12 year old boys who just got grounded for looking at porn.

I'd much rather have a forward who can play both sides of the puck and has good size. He's still a kid and has the skills and talent, so now he just works on strength and let the coaches do the rest. Don't be too quick to judge just because you think some other guy "might" project big. We have more picks and we are notorious for late round gems. We have a solid group of guys both up and down and this just adds to that.

Exactly, I don't get it. We've got a surplus of defensive minded, low scoring forwards.

Exactly, we have alot lacking in two areas, size and top scoring prospects. We have a metric ton of role players. The biggest problem for us was last year is the only two forwards that filled that size and scoring level requirements were Johan who was injured and Bertuzzi who was a turnover machine.

a 19th pick may not necesarly get you both of those things, but at least this kid is not 5-10. We shall see about them in many years... though I would gladly put this guy in right now over Bertuzzi. At least we still have Tatar!

Because some random dude says he'll project that way, you just jump on the bandwagon? Seriously, do some research and think for yourself.

Hockey's Future bio:

Talent Analysis

Sheahan is an excellent playmaker and scorer. His skating is effortless, and he has the size to comepte at the next level.

Future

Projects as a first liner, but is versatile enough to play any role.

A little more optimistic. :)

I'd be really happy if he met that potential, but from what I've seen/heard elsewhere it doesn't seem like it. I hope I have to eat crow on this one.

I get helm&abdelkader-visions when reading that summary about him...

I don't get what Kenny is doing with his defense. Sure, Kronwall hits, Stuart does a little, but 5 out of 6 d-men are softies, with captain nick leading the way. Tinordi is right there, this guy is gonna be a monster in 4 years, Sheahan is gonna have trouble cracking the lineup because of the of jam at center for the next decade. Oh well, we will see if Tinordi becomes a star and if Sheahan even makes the club in 4 to 5 years. Then there is another fubar draft I can hate Holland for...

“He's so mature for a kid his age -- I'm overwhelmed with that. He's equally good in all three zones and goes to the front of the net. He's very conscious in the defensive zone and down behind the net in the defensive corner -- he makes certain his team isn't outnumbered. In the neutral zone, he makes all kinds of things happen but will get back and turn a transition if needed."

I like this pick, he's big, smart, solid hands, and a good skater.

Hopefully he can develop into a good net presence power forward.

He's not just a roleplayer.

I think Kenny is going after role players since he has the core down for the next 5 years or so.

Tinordi's dad likes the spotlight.

Why draft this kid? HMM, he's big ( by red wings standers ) and plays center... well if he works out to be good defensively he could be the 3 or 4th line center, if he turns out to be more offensively talented then expected, throw him on a wing to be the big body net presence. Homer and Bert are not getting younger or better with time. so why not Draft a big forward in hope they can replace Homer or Bert when they retire. That is just my logic, I'm by far not an elite hockey drafter.

Saw him play a couple of times last season in South Bend. I think he fits the Wings mold pretty well after watching him in person. Very good hockey sense, plays on both sides of the ice, & isn't afraid to go into the tough areas of the ice. Despite having problems putting the puck in the net, he didn't look like a freshman on the ice. Can't say I'm going to pull out my hair & gnash my teeth over this pick.

Sheahan is fine pick. Kabanov is really the only forward left that really has 'star' potential, and he has his baggage. Sheahan is projected as a good to very good two-way player, and I think he'll fit our system well.

Would have been nice to trade down, but I can't complain too much, they probably couldn't get the deal they wanted.

You just got decent size with that pick, he's 18 and 6'2" 200lbs right now. As far as offensive minded players in our system - do a little research: Tatar, Nyquist, Ferraro, Emmerton (has the ability, just needs to take it up a level), Nestrasil, and Pare (has the ability). All these players have the ability to be top 6 forwards and also be sound defensively.

Sure we don't have any 6'4" behemoths in our system right now, but skimming our prospects, we have plenty of guys who are 6' to 6'3" who will make an impact.

Stop trying to be experts because next to Holland and co. you don't know s***.

So then... where the hell is Emmerton supposed to play? He is not a top six guy, and not a fourth liner... So is this a admission that Corey is a bust?

We need more playmakers now. As it stands, unless we pull another late round pick out of our asses, then when Pavel and Hank retire, we are going to have an old Johan (maybe) Fillpula, Tatar and possibly Ferraro. That doesn't even sound like playoff cailber.

Edit: Nyquist as well.
