Draft position?

Rate this topic

63 posts in this topic

Looking at mock drafts posted yesterday, the Wings are slotted at 18th. Is this true?

Does anyone know how this works?

SC winner = 30th

SC runner up = 29th

Conference finalists = 28th & 27th

then what? I'm confused.

If this get answered quickly, you can close this thread right away.

Thanks

I think it is correct. It goes by regular season record until you make the conference finals if I'm not mistaken.

Any good prospects fall around 18?

Easy answer is: Yes, there should be a lot of good players that could be available at 18.

17. STEVE SANTINI D 6'2 207 R Mar. 7/95 USA U-18 USNTDP

18. FREDERIK GAUTHIER C 6'5 210 L Apr. 26/95 Rimouski QMJHL

19. VALENTIN ZYKOV RW 6'0 210 R Apr. 15/95 Baie-Comeau QMJHL

20. KERBY RYCHEL LW 6'1 200 L Oct. 7/94 Windsor OHL

21. JOSHUA MORRISSEY D 6'0 182 L Mar. 28/95 Prince Albert WHL

22. MADISON BOWEY D 6'1 200 R Apr. 22/95 Kelowna WHL

23. ANTHONY MANTHA F 6'4 190 L Sept. 16/94 Val-d'Or QMJHL

...if any of the bolded players are available and Holland actually takes one of them, I would be VERY happy with him!

I see on that list that our boy McCarron has up'd his stock in this draft. I sure hope he is available in the 2nd round to us...

I know we talk about size up front and our need for scoring, but I am telling you, that Santini is very interesting. Right handed shooting defenseman, 6'2" 207lbs at 18 years old! By time he makes the Wings (if drafted) he will be every bit of 6'4" 225lbs...of course Gauthier is a big at his age too! He could be a huge forward for us in 4 yrs.

Gauthier is exactly what we need, a big skilled forward that can get to the net and great hockey sense. He would be huge in a tougher Eastern Conference.

.

I was thinking the same thing base on paper. But like I said earlier idk the guys. Does he actually use his size? Or is he a franzen....

Towards the middle it talks about he uses his size pretty well.

The hockey News draft mag says he's not expected to be a point producer even though he was close to a point per game plus it says he has a tendency of disappearing come playoff time. They said he's more of a 3rd line guy. Mantha or Rychel would be my picks if they went forward

im hoping for valentin zykov ... heard montreal is gonna try moving up the draft to maybe get a quebec player cause they got 3 2nd round picks and 2 3rd rounders

i wouldnt be opposed to maybe trading our 18th for picks 25 and 34

I doubt McCarron makes it to the 2nd round. He seems to have a lot of upside and at worst a big physical forward who can skate. Alraedy 6'5" 229ilbs and growing, he's gonna be a monster. I wouldn't be surprised if the Wings trade down and get him and a bonus 2nd rounder(or prospect) out of it again.

"Mike McCarron — A revelation in the tournament, McCarron should continue his rise up many draft boards. At 6-5, 225, he doesn’t have to do much to be noticeable, but it seemed he was doing something every time out. Not just a bruising forward, McCarron showed terrific skating and puck skills. He was incredibly difficult to out battle along the boards and while he didn’t throw his weight around a ton, he showed he can be physical. McCarron has elite puck skills for a player of his size and showed both a willingness to distribute and a lack of fear of his shot, which is quite good. His footwork is solid enough and improving. There’s a good chance a team is going to take the risk late in the first round just because of McCarron’s immense upside. His decision-making could improve a bit, but the physical tools are right where they need to be at this point. McCarron could turn into a heck of a pro hockey player down the line. U18WC Statline: 7 GP, 3-2–5, 14 PIM, E. Projected Draft Range: Late-First to Early-Second Round"
