Ninth Pick Boston selects Doug Hamilton D

Boston gets stronger that is for sure. Hamilton MIGHT go to an Ivy league school to play though...

Reminder, I will handle the draft updates. Feel free to discuss!!!

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.

Watching the Tigers I forgot all about the draft. Just pulled up a stream and tracker. So what the heck is going on? Why did 3 teams pass on a defensemen billed to be the next Nick Lidstrom? Are they stupid or insane. Especially a sh!t organization like Florida.

Tenth Pick Wild select Jonas Brodin D

DAMN IT!!! That was the safest pick for us... We now have some interesting options available. My pick for the Wings is still available.

We got a long way to go before 24. So who do you want/like the Wings to take?

Jaime Oleksiak D would be my first choice.

Twelfth Pick Canes select Ryan Murphy D

Carolina shows great patience letting someone who might have gone 4th overall fall to them.

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?

I was thinking he's kind of small, but there's more to life than size.

Well compared to Chara all defensemen are small.

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.

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,

Downside he will be in college for a while, I think the Wings might not like that...
