Pisses me off that LA traded up to get Zykov...really wanted him the Wings organization...Also they got Fasching, who I wanted too, but Holland had ample opportunity to get him, so he must not of liked him too much...also Jersey irked me by taking Santini...He will be a HUGE player in the NHL one day an I only wish that Holland was able to take him...oh well!
I love that Mantha was selected, but I do not know anything about any of the other guys taken by Holland...
Also, VERY disappointed that we didn't move Filppula...guess we will just let him walk on Friday. Not surprised, but a little dejected that there was no Bobby Ryan trade to Detroit either. Also intrigued that Holland put an offer in for Edler, wonder what it was? Either the price was too high or Vancouver is still mulling it over... Edler and Burrows to Detroit? Ya, only in a dream!
All in all, I wasn't over impressed by the draft, considering it seems like after Mantha that Holland was just drafting projects and not really addressing needs...
I do give him an A+ for Mantha, that is for sure!
Bring Fedorov Home For A Day!
He Needs To Retire A Red Wing.
When Gordie Leaves Us, the NHL MUST Retire The #9.
