More Nill:

“I don’t like to make comparisons with young players. It’s not really fair to them,’’ Nill said. “But he does remind me of (Detroit power forward) Johan Franzen. He’s got a big, thick body. He’s been a big scorer. That’s what we project him to be.’’

does anyone know how many years he has left at Notre Dame ? Hopefully not to many 19 now say 2 more he will be 21 before he even get to GR then he will be there at least a year would be my guess. Does anyone have a clip of him getting called up by the Wings ?

He doesn't turn 19 until December.

This is probably way premature, but it's just nice and fun to speculate sometimes. DO NOT take this seriously, critique all you want, but don't take this as a "I believe this is the way things actually will be" kind of post. More like, "maybe this could happen".

So, in 2 years, Lidstrom, Holmstrom, Bertuzzi, Osgood, and Draper will all more than likely be retired or moving on (probably only Bert). So I'm just speculating, again, but with the prospects we have, maybe this is something we could see at that time:

Hudler - Datsyuk - Franzen
Tatar - Zetterberg - Nestrasil
Cleary - Filppula - Ritola
Helm - Abdelkader - Eaves


Okay so that was a lot harder than I thought, I was sort of thinking about plugging Sheahan into the system in a couple years, which is unlikely, but I thought with his size and physical and mental maturity it could be possible. But for what the team needs, Tatar may be more ready, and Nestrasil is a RW with some good size who can score too.

I figured you'd plug Flip into the second line and Sheahan could center the 3rd line to start his NHL career... playing in on the powerplay and PK.



Oh and the Defense:

Smith - Rafalski
Kronwall - Stuart
Ericsson - Kindl
Kolosov/Pyett

I think our future is pretty damn good looking at our prospects. You have to remember that our core is still 25-30 right now so we have another 5-10 years to develop and integrate new talent into that system and keep rolling over the core into new players. You lose Lidstrom, but if Smith projects what they say he can, he'll be a solid guy to step in and have a bright future. You also look at Defensive prospects like Lashoff (19), Almqvist (19), Nicastro (20), Fournier (18), Jensen (19), Rufenach (21), and Piche (22). THese are all guys capable of stepping in, in a couple years as long as they develop well, and let's face it, they're in a good program to do that. The Wings love to develop and take it slow with prospects which could end in good things to come.

lol i forgot about Sheahan being arrested .....our prospects are on a roll

Text Size
Two NHL prospects, both freshmen at Notre Dame, were arrested on Sunday in South Bend, Indiana, a local newspaper reported.

Riley Sheahan, a potential first round pick in 2010, and Kyle Palmieri, a first-round selection of the Anaheim Ducks at last year's draft, are now facing charges, according to the South Bend Tribune.

Sheahan, 18, is charged with public intoxication and minor alcohol consumption, while 19-year-old Palmieri is charged with two counts of resisting arrest and minor alcohol consumption.

According to a police report, an officer saw Palmieri, Sheahan and a third person standing in the back of a pickup truck at approximately 2:30am et on Sunday. When approached by an officer, Palmieri tried to run away, which led to a struggle, the paper reported. Then Palmieri allegedly reached for the officer's Taser.

The Tribune reported that the police said tests showed Palmieri's blood-alcohol level to be .10 percent and Sheahan's to be .12.

Palmieri was the 26th overall pick in the 2009 draft.

Sheahan, of St. Catharines, Ontario, is the 22nd-ranked North American skater in the Central Scouting final rankings, having previously been fifth in the midterm rankings.

Each player registered 17 points in his first season with Notre Dame last season.



At Drake on the Wings site it says hes 19....maybe its wrong then

My hope is that this guy or Joakim Andersson or Justin Abdelkader, one of those dudes will allow Datsyuk and Zetterberg to play together full time.

“Without question he achieved quite a bit (as a freshman) for the youngest player in college hockey," says Notre Dame coach Jeff Jackson. "He was 17 years old and was playing up against 20-year-old players on a regular basis in practice and games, and he did extremely well. He was a freshman that came in and played a regular role in both our power play and penalty kill situation, so he was an important part of our team. He’s a very responsible player, very smart, and because of that I could use him in almost any situation. He’s more than a defensive forward; I know he can do quite a bit more offensively, and we’ll be relying on that in the future.”

When they were talking to him they said he liked the physical part of the game and playing gritty as well. I always like that, anyone know if he has a good physical and plays the body a lot or is he just more of a strong in the corners type of guy?

Can't complain, 6'2 200+ pounds and from somewhat near my hometown and from the town my university is in. Much better pick then Kabanov i must say

Weird... I've seen it listed as 18. Everywhere I look has his birth date listed as Dec. 7, 1991. But I'd trust the Wings official site over assorted drafting sites.

When they were talking to him they said he liked the physical part of the game and playing gritty as well. I always like that, anyone know if he has a good physical and plays the body a lot or is he just more of a strong in the corners type of guy?

Worst case he gives us a big shut-down forward with size and smarts. Best case he's a 1st line centre who can use his size against his opponents. I'm hoping he grows another inch or two as well. It's exciting that he's already filled out to 200lbs, though.

One thing his coach said is he would like Sheahan to be more physical so im assuming there is a lot of room to step it up in that department.

Well next on the Draft list is hopefully

-RIGHT!!! handed shot !
-BIG NASTY D MAN no smaller then 6'1
-potential 3rd/4th liner that drops the mits and can put points up (LUCIC,NEIL) style player
-Puck moving D man few more years to develope by that time Lids and Raffy are probably gone


If we can even get a couple guys that fit that ill be real happy, all of them i might streak down a main street.


maybe

Know who else did good in junior? Kirk Maltby. 50 GOAL HANDS!






Good point, shoulda drafted a 7 goal scorer instead.


I mean what did Kirk Maltby do in the NHL besides win 4 Stanley Cups and play 1000 career games and 116 playoff games.

Here's what I found on one of the guys King mentioned (found on this site):

51. Andrew Yogan, Center, Erie- OHL:
Andrew Yogan has the chance to make the state of Florida really proud this year if he is drafted. Yogan is an interesting prospect that has a lot of good tools around his game. His skating is good; the stride is smooth and has a decent top speed. He has a big frame and a long reach which he uses at times in the offensive zone to strip the puck off defenders. He will use his size on the attack to pound defenders or go to the traffic areas for puck. He’s at his best with the puck on his stick, showing some flash and creativity. His decision-making can be questionable to at times downright awful and even with a good set of skills, that may be his real hamper him as he progresses in his career. He doesn’t produce enough offense to project as a serious offensive contributor down the road.


The comment on his hockey smarts might hurt him for the Wings... they're pretty particular on drafting high hockey IQ kids.

Apparently one of the Duck's scouts wanted the team to draft him at 12th before the draft started. Compared to Getzlaf. Anyway you cut it, he's basically a high school aged kids playing agaisnt kids far older than him. In a few years, this pick could be looking like a steal.

Yea, unfortunately they were too busy drafting a future #1 defenceman...

BTW I couldn't help but be annoyed watching Florida have fun with all those picks. I think Kenny dropped the ball with Leino, Quincey, Lebda, etc and we should have more picks this year and last year. Bummer. Hopefully they pull off some steals tomorrow

i would just like to note that the draft jersey he is wearing Delvecchio's retired #10. I know that all the teams draft jerseys have the number of the draft year, but i wonder if Kenny, babs and the gang who went up on stage had something to say to bettman about it. If anything it was a rare opportunity to see a #10 wings jersey. i hope its a good omen of how this draft class will turn out for the wings
