I like what I know of the player, but I wonder why they didnt wait.

How so?

Richdg likes to think he's an expert on every draft prospect. I think I trust Detroit's scouting staff given their reputation

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

No way for you to know that until 5 years from now. 

when a guy is ranked 230th by CS you can wait. No I have no idea how he will turn out. But there is no reason to take him now. He would have been there in the 5th, 6th, 7th rounds.

They must have heard that someone else wants him too

He had 117 penalty minutes last season with Guelph. Sounds like this kid might be pretty tough and possibly gritty. Interesting

So who would you have suggested they take?

No. He is definitely would not have been there in the 5th, 6th, 7th rounds. Oh wait... there's no way I can prove that. So, it is really a worthless statement.

That's what I'm thinking.

If he can be Callahan+ this could be a decent pick, but I can't believe there weren't other options if he got picked early.

From what I'm reading the Wings like his "aggressive in your face" style, and apparently the kid is a grinder and likes to play in the hard areas. Could be a really good pick for what some say this team lacks

Think of a Callahan without the fighting ability...who still fights a lot. Strange pick but as with all picks there's many years for him yet.

I guess that means Bert is gone. I think it was part of the collective bargaining agreement that you can only have 1 bertuzzi per franchise.

I can give you a good reason why to take him now. Another team shows interest in taking him before you pick again. CS means nothing when your own scouts think hes better. If CS meant everything then Dats and Hank would have been 1st rounders.

He is 5-9/160ish and not a scorer. There are far better prospects at every position still on the board.

Just think. They gave up nothing to get this extra pick so its a free gamble.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

Hopefully he can develop offensively over the next few years.
