Eleventh Pick Avs select Duncan Siemens D

Jaime Oleksiak D would be my first choice.

At 6'7 that's a big boy. Talent Analysis

Oleksiak is a defenseman that possesses a really nice blend of size, physicality and outstanding puck skills. While much has been said of his size and physical side, what is most impressive about Oleksiak is his superb agility and athleticism. He moves remarkably well for such a big man, skating with long, fluid strides. He also maintains very good balance on his skates as well.

Sounds interesting. Have you seen him play?

Yes, I have seen him play.

He really has a knack for moving inside out and can go to the corner and come back to clear the front of the net. He struggles more high up in the Zone, and I seen him make the mistake of going for the puck when he should back off. He isn't a Myers or a Chara, he is something else-- something good. I don't know if he will be there, but he is a project that has size. Something the Wings want more of, and has better brains than your Joe Morrows. He would be a top three dman.

Who do you want wings to pickup?

I don't follow jr. hockey so I really have no idea about any of these kids apart from what I am told. I watch a bit of NCAA hockey(mainly Michigan) so I might recognize a name or two in a draft. But I'd like to see the Wings pick-up another big/skilled forward like they did last year with Shehan,

Fourteenth Pick Stars select Jaime Oleksiak D

This is why I hate to say things out loud... the universe can smite me quite often.

Alright, how about this, roll off your next best 5 regardless of position you'd like to see the Wings take? Surely one of them will drop to 24.

Fifteenth Pick Rangers select J.T. Miller C

Or they will all be taken in a row! haha.

Seriously, I know it wouldn't be popular but Rocco Grimaldi would be a solid pick. Small but amazing. It would be like stealing a top 4 pick in terms of talent. Sounds like a Ken Holland move. The Defense is getting thinned out, all the major Dmen left have big question marks. I like Conner Murphy there, as he is our type of guy and has good size, biggest fault is he was seriously injured. I can forgive that.
