Don't know if I'd say "schooled" but he'd better have something good up his sleeve with LA, SJ and C-bus all getting better and taking chances and we're still standing around watching.

The way I look at it is all these teams are just trying to catch up us.

Also, at least we won't have to worry about Seto killing us in the playoffs.

Note: Eyes on this thread have gone up proportionally as we get closer to the Wings pick... Gee who would have thought? :D

I don't want anyone inconsistent. Team would be better off with someone who is a rock and not as talented then someone who is a homerun hitter.

Like what?

Well I would start with Filppula and a McCollum or Tatar or Nyquist maybe a Kindl da da da da there's some decent prospects in the Wings system. Throw some picks in as well like SJ did. You could get creative and put a decent package together.

Brent Burns to San Jose just ruined the rest of my day. I guess Holland isn't gonna even attempt to make any trades. I hope July 1st is a big day for the Wings.

Is SJ losing anyone this offseason besides White? Their D was solid and now they're replacing White with Burns...damn. I really hope Kenny's got a plan...

Morrow has extremely risky decision making and is a liability. Do we need more offensive upside dmen? We have four of those in the farm. Just my two cents.

The only way you get Burns is if it's like Filpulla + Smith + 1st

Yeah it doesn't seem like Holland will ever do any of that.

Three firsts basically. We have that available in Sheahan, Emmerton, Kindl, Ferro and Hudler was available too. Fil would have been a good trade too.

Yeah but Coyle is like SJ's best prospect. Emmerton, Kindl, Ferrero isn't much. Even Sheahan hasn't looked great. Would have to be Smith.

Twentieth Pick Yotes select Conner Murphy D

There goes another good Wings selection.

Woohoo, Murphy goes too early and potentially pushes a better d-man back to the Wings.

Yea, San Jose has a long way to go before they catch up with us...

On other teams, unfortunately. Now I am thinking trade down, or go the standard skill route. I see three names... Not going to say them now.

He is better than some that have already been drafted. He is way better than what is left for sure. Only knock was he missed much of the last two years because he had a broken vertebrae. Can't fault him on that.

Twenty-first Pick Sens select Stefan Noeson RW

If morrow gets Drafted before we pick who do we take. I know we wanted a D but a lot of BPA forwards when we will pick.
