FWIW, TSN has the 35 pick as RW dimitri jackson:

The big Czech winger impressed scouts at this spring's U-18 championship, netting four goals in five games. Played 33 games in the Czech elite league. Strengths - Big, strong player with decent hands and a heavy shot. Uses size and strength effectively along the wall, excellent balance, plays a smart, pro-style game, adept at protecting the puck, solid work ethic. Weaknesses - His feet are mediocre, will need to work on his quickness and agility. Not overly gritty considering his size. NHL Upside - has been compared to Guillaume Latendresse, but with a better skating stride. Also has been called a less skilled Bobby Ryan. If his feet come along may have second-line upside.

and the 48th as defenseman ryan sproul:

After January 1, the only OHL defenceman to score more goals than Sproul's ten was CHL Player of the Year Ryan Ellis with 12. Started the season with Vaughan in the OJHL before deciding to join the Sault Ste. Marie instead of going the NCAA route. Strengths - Scored most of his 14 goals with a heavy slapshot. Game improved substantially over the second half of the season, raw offensive tools, sees the ice well and finds shooting lanes. Weaknesses - needs work on his quickness and lateral agility. Very raw, not overly physical. Decision making needs work, as well as his defensive game. NHL Upside - Skating will be a key to his development. If he makes the NHL he will contribute goals on the power play.

Trade- Detroit Pick 24 to Ottawa for 35-48

trading one pick for picks 35-48 is pretty impressive i think.

Good move, nothing looking good? Move back.

In Holland I trust.


I don t know, Ferraro and Sheahan (especially Ferraro) have bust written all over them.. Last 1 st picks have been disappointing, and last time we traded down (ferraro + Nestrasil) look like it didn t worked so well...

Twenty-third Pick Pens select Joe Morrow D
"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.

I am not surprised or disappointed. There is no one that blows you away, and some of the good ones might still be there. Also there might be a move back up.

Besides Morrow just taken.

Exactly what Bill Polian and Bill Belichick do every year. Can't complain with that method at all.

I bet they might be using some of these picks to make a move for a Dman.

I bet pick 48 might be in on a deal for a Carle, Scudari, Colburn or what have you...

What a waste of an evening! Damn! I am gonna just think positive and say that Holland REALLY wanted Morrow, but couldn't convince s***sburgh to not take him, so he said f*** it and traded down... ya that's what happened, that's the ticket... Now I feel better!
