Don't think I saw any mention of Oscar Klefbom. Mocks I saw had the Wings selecting him.

*edit* That may have been before the new ISS rankings came out, jumped from 26 to 10 I think it was.

Looking at some mock drafts in later rounds I like Joel Edmundson as a potential stay at home defenseman, he has drawn comparison to former teammate Dylan Mcilrath. A 3rd round pick on him would vbe nice, he is 6'4 and mean (good pick if we dont take Oleksiak or Mayfield first round).

Jesse Forsberg hasnt lived up to offensive excpectations but has all the tools. He is 6'1 and one of the toughest defenseman in the WHL. He is always throwing huge hits and playing solid defensive hockey.

Tyler Hansen is also a big stay at home type, he isnt quite as tough as the other guys but still could be a nice pick.

I would really like to see the wings develop a big, mean stay at home guy. If you can use a pick on Sergei Kolosov, whats wrong with picking Edmundson or Forsberg lol?

anyone else noticed that we havent drafted a Russian or old Soviet block countries players, since Kolosov and Stolyarov in '04?

will we pick one this draft?

anyway, my pick for the first round at #24 will be Tomas Jurco. and hopefully Kenny can trade up and get
Vladislav Namestnikov as well. 2nd round Joel Edmundson. 3rd round Andrei Pedan, 4th round Joel Lowry, 5th round Alex Roach 6th round Ildar Isangulov 7th round Vladislav Kartayev 8th round Stefan Steen

Yep same here, with the depth at forward the wings have, Mrazek and Howard looking good long term and the lack of defense I think 2 of the top 3 picks should be defenseman (obviously if some unreal forward falls to them then yeah take him).

In the first I would love to see the wings get their hands on Morrow or Oleksiak.

Second round Edmundson would be great

Third round Jesse Forsberg looks great as well.

All of these guys are tough defenseman who can play the game it seems and have the potential to be shutdown type players.

Any 2 of those three would make me very happy.

In the third I would love to see the wings go for Travis Ewanyk. He did work against Yakupoov in the u18s as a shutdown type. Hes a great PKer, hits hard, fights well, agitates and is great defensively. With callahan looking to turn out great, I would like to see another forward of his ilk taken out of the dub. Ewanyk looks great in the third round

This would be another great year to trade down. It would also be a good year to trade up.

Great talent at the top, and it is pretty deep for the first couple of rounds.

If they think they can get a good defenseman that can step into the NHL soon in the next few years, I think they will take that guy. Whether they have to trade up for him or not.

The Wings are a team that drafts the best player available, but this year I think they are scared about their cupboard being emptied of Defense for the first time in a while. With all our great offensive prospects, they will take defense, and I think they want someone in the first two rounds that will step up sooner rather than later. I also think this player will be a defensive first Dman.

Brodin is the one I would bet on.

Addendum, if we took Rocco I would expect him to play like Patrick Kane.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

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.

Your original post refers to the "Soviet block [sic]". The Soviet Bloc, also better known as the Eastern Bloc, is a term denoting the countries behind the Iron Curtain that were within the sphere of influence of the USSR. These countries include East Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Albania, and Yugoslavia. So, the other poster was correct that the Wings have drafted players from the former Soviet Bloc states.

If you're talking about independent nations that were once a part of the USSR, those are Former Soviet Republics or Post-Soviet States.

/homework graded

Soviet bloc and Eastern bloc are 2 different things:
Soviet bloc are countries that were once part of the USSR, Eastern bloc are countries that as you rightly stated came under the influence of the old USSR but were never part of the old USSR and were countries in their own right. Maybe if i had worded it as former Soviet countries it would have been easier to follow.

the thing about Biggs is he had an absolutely terrible U-18s. While he's big and tough, there are doubts about his overall hockey sense and projected skill level. A lot of scouts are starting to believe that he might only be a 3rd liner at the NHL level.

and as for Zibanejad and Landeskog, man, I wish. Those two will be looong gone by the Wings' pick. I'm holding out for one of Brodin or Klefbom, but I don't know if even they will be there.

My picks:
Khokhlachev, Alexander
Karlsson, William
Jaskin, Dmitri

I would s*** bricks and build a house if some how Oscar Klefbom fell to us. Big mobile DMan.

Don't think I saw any mention of Oscar Klefbom. Mocks I saw had the Wings selecting him.

*edit* That may have been before the new ISS rankings came out, jumped from 26 to 10 I think it was.
