Talent Analysis

ISS in April 2010: "He found himself in and out of the doghouse moving from the second to fourth line. Despite that, he put up great numbers with 21 goals and 73 points and did not miss a single game. He is also a big reason why the Tri-City Americans are in the Western Conference Finals as he is tied for the lead in points with four goals, nine assists. He is demonstrating his explosive speed. After three strides he is at top speed and uses it very well. He has earned an expanded role in key situations, along with a steady rise up ISS rankings."

Sounds like a very, very decent get with a 6th rounder.

Good speed, obviously some playmaking abilities, can't see much wrong with it.

Ken Holland: Hes (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, hes a puck hound.

Maybe they're looking at Evgeni Ryasenski as their D-man in this draft, or they're going to draft a small skilled one in the 7th.

with the addition of Brooks Macek we have now drafted 3 forwards with right handed shots! that really excites me because right handed shots are few and far between in the wings organization

be about it!

I'm not going to complain about not getting a defenseman (I did enough about Sheahan), but it'd still be nice for them to take a big body with their 7th rounder. I really like the Pukkinen pick; if he stays healthy he's a huge steal. Not sure about Aubrey, as it seems like guys from the Q have crapped out for us in the past a bit. If Jarnkrok can fill out, I see him being a pretty good player.

Also, I really like that we're getting so many right-handed shots. It gives teams some different looks when you mix it up like that.

If you check up on what we have done in the last few years in terms of bringing in defensive prospects, you wouldn't need to worry. The fact that we brought in three young defenders in the last two years that are looking like solid 5-7 defensemen prospects, and the years before hand bringing in Jakub an Brendan who should be top four guys, and Ericcson could still be anywhere from 4-7, we really don't need to worry too much about it.

Our problems in our system have been up front in the short term past. What we did last year and what we did this year really have fixed that. Next year we most likely will address defense early and have a more balanced draft.

:thumbup:



I like to have three right handers up front and two on the back end, provided they have the skill set to fit in. The NHL seems to be more accepting of right handers on the Left side as well due to the lack of obstruction. Lets those guys like Ovie fly up and let loose a shot.

I like having more right handers so I can buy sticks and try them out at the Red Wings sale. Dandeault got me the stick curve that I still use today.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

I would love to trade for Mikael Granlund some day down the line and put him next to Teemu btw. They have absurd chemistry together. Another Eurotwins line would be great!

He must be small, he is hard to find even on google.

Yeah it looks very similar to the one above mine. If he was that skilled he probably would have gotten noticed by other teams since hes from NA and thats where most of the scouts are. Maybe Hakan didn't have anyone in mind for this pick, but really there musta been some goon or something we coulda taken over this guy.

Or at very least someone bigger. 2 more defensemen got taken after our pick, 6'3" and 6'4" respectively, one from Canada the other from Sweden. Puzzling to say the least

I will say this, the only organization in the world that makes me excited to go off the board is the Detroit Red Wings. Not ranked by central scouting, but ranked by the Red Wings is something I would love to be.
