Obviously that 58th pick is important.

I think we get the 20 and 58th for the 18th.

Smart move in my eyes

Only two spots back and you pick up another 2nd rounder. Gotta count that as a win.

I guess Holland didn't want the Wings to have the highest pick they've had since 2005?   :P

 

 

Actually I forgot Kindl was 19th so I think it would've been the highest pick they've had since they drafted Lapointe in 91? Or am I forgetting someone?

I'd rather have Blumber Operton from the Flomboyd Flampwonkers.

 

You would like him  :rolleyes:

Well all my guys are still there.....so hopefully Holland snags one at 20....wonder who the Sharks wanted so bad to move up two spots?

Trading down just means there are multiple players the Wings are targeting that will still be available.  Why not grab another pick under that circumstance?

just read "gillis said he did not talk to luongo before agreeing to the schnider deal" on the twitter feed under the draft coverage.... it could get messier haha


It isn't like Luongo has a lot of options. He plays in Vancouver and gets paid or he sits out and doesn't. It isn't like Vancouver didn't try to trade him.

Good trade. Holland & Co. probably takes their chances that the guy they would have picked at 18 will still be around at 20 and adding a 2nd rounder in process, knowing the kind of diamonds we have a habit of finding that late is a smart move.

That extra 2nd rounder will be important when Holland trades one in the Bobby Ryan deal! :ninja:

love that trade.lose out on the possibility of 2 players and pick up a top 60 pick. good asset management. 


I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.
