I agree with you 1000% but in the same time, the best replacement for Lids (if there is any) is Kronwall...

I'm wondering who is the better option for Kronwall, Suter or Weber?

Suter is playing on the same L side as Kronwall... imo Weber is better fit for Kronwall.

Well, once Suter is here for a year, he will personally be resposible for Weber coming next July...that will rock!

anyhow, IMO and summing up Hollands day, besides not having that blockbuster trade (oh well) I really like Hollands picks! I think the first ones to make it to Detroit are Frk, McKee and Bodin...

I doubt Parise signs with Pittsburgh, he's already flat out said he won't sign with the Rangers so I doubt he'd go to a different rival.

Don't worry boys and girls. Kenny is planning something bigger than everybody anticipates. He may bring Ovi, Semin and Suter to form the best line in NHL history. Dont worry if we won't get Parise. Ovi at 9.5 mil is better then Parise for 8mil/year. These guys will enjoy playing for Wings. Go Kenny !

On Hockeycentral at noon they were talking about how the Isles offered all of their draft picks to Columbus for their 2nd overall pick. Nothing surprises me with the Isles. It never materialized as Columbus used the pick and took Murray.

I have been doing some reading and research on the Wings picks...I can honestly say this is one of the Wings best drafts in a long time. I can also honestly see all 6 of these kids being in the Detroit when their time comes. The only one who may have an issue is the goalie, Paterson, only because Howad is still young and Mrazek is doing so good too! Now, he may not be a Red Wing, but he could make it somewhere else, but the other five? I can see them filling certain and different roles on this team within the next 3-7 years. I think McKee and Bodin are going to be HUGE (no pun intended) surprises to the NHL world and once again, Holland will deemed a genius! De Haas may have a bit of a challenge too considering Detroit's interest in Suter and Schultz. If Holland lands those two or even one of them, the Wings have a great young core of defenders who will be here for a long time. Kronwall, Ericsson, Suter, Smith, Schultz, if he signs Dekeyser, and also there are two kids in the top 10 prospects Sproul and Ouellet. If Holland gets Suter/Schultz then eventually Dekeyser I can see Sproul and Ouellet even having a hard time cracking this lineup anytime soon, but again De Haas looks like a great young defenseman and should make some waves in GR and eventually, if not for the Wings, somewhere in the NHL too... Good on ya, Holland!

(now go and get Suter and Schultz) (note: Kindl and Quincey were left out purposely... :lol:)
