I think the Wings are hoping for Tomas Jurco to still be around for the 35th pick. Then they will draft defense like they said. Jurco would be a solid prospect to develop with his comrade Tatar.


:siren:
Jurco is a great talent for the Wings. Can you say Hossa Jr? I've read that Jurco is responsible in his own end when he's not scoring crazy highlight-reel goals.


Tvrdon... 6 letters, 1 consonants. Exactly what our announcers need :)

Seriously, he is already big at 18. 6.2, 210lbs... hope he adds to this a bit more...


I think you mean 1 vowel.

This team is really high on Slovak players. Tvrdon could turn out to be a steal, hopefully injuries don't continue to affect him.

I didn't expect Backman to still be available at 146. final rank at 39th. Smart swedish dman. Good pick Holland

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.

My only problem is, is that I don't see the Wings drafting any Russians. I'd love those two picks, but the Wings don't like drafting Russians.


Which just doesn't make sense when one of your best players is russian.

Philippe Hudon, right-handed forward, will be playing at Cornell this year

Mattias Backman, tall, skinny Swedish defenseman, typical Red Wings late round pick

Go check HFBoards right now and see who they said the steal of the draft was last year, I'll give you a hint It starts with Teemu and ends in Pulkkinen. Check out this years "steal of the draft", I'll give you a hint, his name starts with Marek and ends with Tvrdon.

Wings certainly got height and size this year, can't wait to see what people complain about next year.

Philippe Hudon, RW – Choate Wild Boars (Conn. HS)
An incredible student who shook off the Quebec League in favor of a future at Cornell, Hudon is thriving at the prep school level in Connecticut. A big kid who likes Milan Lucic’s game, Hudon possesses excellent athleticism and isn’t afraid to throw his weight around.

“People have classified me as a power forward,” Hudon said. “I think that is a perfect categorization. My role is to set the tone; get a quick goal or make a quick pass, but also to make a big hit.”

This will please the masses. :)

Ken Holland: He’s (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, he’s a puck hound.

Teemu Pulkkinen is injury prone last time I checked. I just don't agree on calling these young players steals of the draft when they haven't played in the NHL for a few years even. Get back to me in 10 years when these steals are tearing it up in the NHL and winning championships for the Red Wings. More than likely, out of all these steals, maybe 1 or 2 will pan, maybe.

Hudon:

Hudon helped Choate to a 15-9-1 record in 2010-11, recording 20 points (10-10--20) in 22 games as one of 13 seniors on the roster. In 2009-10, he helped lead Choate to the New England Large Prep Championship with a 21-6-1 record.

He was the only sophomore named to the All New England Division West All-Star Team, despite missing six games playing for Team Quebec at 2010 World Under-17 Challenge.

Hudon was highly regarded at the start of the season but failed to take a significant offensive step forward at the Prep School level. He’s got a decent frame to work with and plays a pretty hard-nosed game, indicating his role will likely be as more of a third line player at the next level. Still, his lack of production is concerning, and the fact that a “power forward” will be heading to Cornell might also be a bit of an issue for NHL teams.


Mattias Backman:

Big, very mobile and brings a solid first pass. If he cracks the SEL roster for Linköping, he'll be at WJC no doubt. Solid case for him to be drafted in the middle of day 2.

From HFB.
Any info on Mattias Backman? His scouting reports remind me of what they said of Niklas Hjalmarsson in '04.
I can see why. Big, very mobile and brings a solid first pass. If he cracks the SEL roster for Linköping, he'll be at WJC no doubt. Solid case for him to be drafted in the middle of day 2.

I have a feeling this draft will be one of the most successful in our recent history...
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Pulkkinen had some freak injuries, he wasn't injury prone, and just played a full SML season and competed in the playoffs and WJHC. He's fine. Why do we have to wait 10 years to satisfy you? I'll get back to you in a couple months to see our guys tearing up leagues that 1st rounders aren't even doing as well in.

This is why the Wings do well in the draft, it always seems they are looking where no one else is. Sweeden breaks a draft record and we are drafting Slovaks. Trend setters perhaps.

Yeah some leagues overseas don't count. I view it as NHL or bust, that is all that matters. NHl is the toughest league out there, doing well in the SML is nice, but until I see this kid being able to sustain many rigorous NHL seasons, I don't buy the hype. Why would no other team draft him, if he was such a young and upcoming dynamic player. On this site, Holland and the draft staff is often viewed as some special god that is able to whisk players out of nowhere. Yes, Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and even Mule were great decisions by the staff to draft, but not all these young guys are going to end up like them. Other teams have just as competent gms and draft staffs (que the Burke jokes here).
Playoff Time. Let's Go Red Wings!!!!
