So I can see the Wings select anyone other than Dylan McIlrath in stunning detail! (JK, guys who already have McIlrath sewn on the back of their jerseys...)

Is it too soon?? :hehe:

For sure, it's funny how excited we get for the 21st pick. Imagine if we had a top 5 pick, LGW would resemble Toronto the day they get to the second round again.

Too bad my cable just went out past channel 24. Probably gonna camp out over my in-laws, NHL network in HD. So I can see the Wings select anyone other than Dylan McIlrath in stunning detail! (JK, guys who already have McIlrath sewn on the back of their jerseys...)

Woo, I'm ready to see some off season action!

I dunno what's more fun; speculating on how well a draftee will do, or speculating on how well a traded player will do.

Here's what that guy said about McIlrath:

66. Dylan McIlrath, Defense, Moose Jaw- WHL:
McIlrath is one player who most people seem very high on that I just canít quite get a grasp on why that is. Heís a great physical specimen, coming in at 6í4 215 and is a beast on the ice and only has room to grow which is scarier. He uses his size almost too much, wrecking people along the boards and daring them to try and re-enter his defensive zone. Has a real mean streak and can get out of hand at times, see his 169 penalty minutes as an example. Good at battling, he will keep forwards out of the crease and also is a feared fighter. However his skating leaves a lot to be desired, as he can get beaten by WHL-level forwards to the outside, he has relatively no puck skills, a good, hard shot but heís not going to be on anyoneís powerplay. Makes bad decisions at times in the offensive zone and can get caught flat-footed in the defensive zone. His hockey sense is decent, but the skating will really hurt him at the next level. Heís a nice physical package and I can see the appeal from one vantage point, but thereís so much he needs to improve upon that heís a real risky pick.
Explanation: Having Dylan McIlrath this low may seem unusual to some, but the reasoning is while Dylan has a lot of desirable physical tools, I just donítí see him turning into a good, valuable hockey player at the NHL level. While he does have the potential, the chances of him reaching that require a ton of development in many areas. The role he would fill, which is a slow, tough, physical shutdown defender who fights, isnít exactly a valuable thing worth investing a high pick or tons of development time into.

What can the Wings give up in order to get the Islanders 5th pick? Apparently it's up for grabs if the right trade is there for them.

Maybe they can get Niederreiter with that 5th pick.

It's pretty much exactly what I said about him. I'm not saying it's right but at least I'm not the only one who sees him as a 2nd rounder (or late 1st) instead of an early 1st.

probably a first, second, tatar and a later round pick. Not worth it IMO wings should be going after that 15th from florida

We'd have to pay out of our ass for a top 5 pick.

Do you understand scouting at all? Guys who are huge and have elite talent will always go higher in the draft.

Let's break every kid down into three categories:
1. Talent
2. Size/Physical tools
3. Mental tools (hockey sense, attitude, etc)

If you're the Detroit Red Wings and you've yet to pick higher than 19th overall in 20 years you have to sacrifice something. So let's look at what you sacrifice:

Size:
If you sacrifice size you can still get away with it because, well, we all know how big Yzerman, Datsyuk and Zetterberg are. And that's not bigger than 5'11. Kane is a midget and is slight as well. He's weighs as much as a wet cat. He seems to have done ok for himself.
Examples: Skinner, Grandlund, Tarasenko, Weal

Talent:
You can sacrifice talent and draft a kid who's got great physical and mental tools but has a lower ceiling for growth. Will this get you a Cup winning team? I'm not sure, I only know that the last option (sacrificing size) can win you a Cup. I do know that these kids could get bigger and stronger but you can't teach talent so you have to hope the scouts missed something there.
Examples: McIlrath, Tinordi

Mental Tools:
Ok, so what if there's a kid who has the talent and size but might not have the drive or attitude? Or maybe the player has a low hockey IQ (McFarland for example). Well you have to bank on the fact that their attitude problems are a maturity issue and that that will come with time, or that they just need a strong system to help them get on track. These kids are either home-runs or busts.
Examples: Kabanov (attitude), McFarland (hockey IQ)

What do you do? The Wings aren't picking in the top 15 so realistically you have to sacrifice something. Talent is the one thing you just can't sacrifice in my opinion because you can't teach it or significantly overcome a lack of it with hard work.

If you wanna take a risk with someone who doesn't have the mental tools take it with Macfarland. His skill set is right up there with Kabanov but the difference is to go along with Kabanovs mental issues he has the chance of going to the KHL. We at least know Macfarland won't dothat and he could be an elite talent as well.

His skill set is right up there with anyone in the draft but he's slipping probably. Its not so much the prima donna attitude of Kabanov that bugs me but its the KHL/Russian factor that does.

I'm feeling like the Wings will go after Johan Larsson if he's around by the time they pick in the 2nd.

If you wanna take a risk with someone who doesn't have the mental tools take it with Macfarland. His skill set is right up there with Kabanov but the difference is to go along with Kabanovs mental issues he has the chance of going to the KHL.

I'm actually not a MacFarland fan (I just used him as an example). From what I've read he's got a low hockey IQ and is too one note.
