Kenny; need to improve DEF and need to get TOUGHER.

You have three RH Dmen at GR...they  drafted at least one a year ago.  Not sure about Toledo or guys they drafted playing in college or Toledo

True. But that was after not taking/developing any for several years. None of which have made it yet and we have no idea if any ever will. We hope they do, but there are no sure things.

That's not really true. There was a 4 year period when the wings didn't choose any right-handed Defencemen, but that was back in 2001-2004. We chose 2 in 2000 so there were those guys in the propect pool and we had Chelios, Dandenault, Krupp on the roster for those years and even Olausson in 2001 so there wasn't much need for rightys. Since 2005, there has been a lot of RH D chosen, but the draft picks just haven't worked out.

 

Right-handed Defence draft picks since 2000:

2000: Paul Ballantyne

2000: Alexaner Seluyanov

2005: Juho Mielonen

2005: Bretton Stamler

2006: Logan Pyett

2008: Max Nicastro

2009: Nick Jensen

2011: Ryan Sproul

2011: Marchenko

 

From everything I have read, It looks incredibly likely that Marchenko and Sproul will be on the Red Wings in the future.

I wouldn't completely rule out Jensen or even Nicastro either

PVD you showed my point perfectly. I said drafting/developing. You showed that since 2000-earlier tbh, we have not developed a single RHed dman. not one. Now we have a couple that may turn out in Sproul and marchenko. So maybe 1/2 over 15 years. That is not very good at all.

I'd trade the world to get Pietrangelo. I don't think we have the assets to put a package together good enough to get him though. So a dream will remain a dream.

 

Shattenkirk is a realistic possibility of being moved.  The Blues are more with keeping Petro, Bou, etc.  They need scoring forwards though.

I wonder if  Smith + Kindl +  1st round pick would be enough to land Byfuglien.

 

While I don't personally love him as a player, he scored 20 + 36 this year and is an absoulte giant. And, of course, has that right shot everone loves.

Okay. I thought you were claiming that we hadn't drafted RH D in the years before, Marchenko, Sproul, Jensen.

 

I actually think it would be safe bet to say that either Marchenko or Sproul will be a regular on the roster next year by Christmas time. At least that's what I've taken from recent Holland/Babcock quotes.

I hope 1 of them is, but that is a 3rd pair thing. We need both to turn out long term so we can bring back some balance.

Spector was going through the list today of RHed Dmen we could be going after. Niskanen (spelling), Big Buf, Gilbert, Myers, and a couple of more.

The thought of Byfuglien in Detroit makes me throw up in my mouth.

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Jeff Petry could be the vet UFA the Wings are looking at. R/H shot local lad and mobile, but maybe not gritty enough?

I have been beating that drum for a while now. Petry is a RFA though, not a UFA. He is almost a RHed clone of DD.

I see Jacob Trouba has been paired with DD at the worlds. Pity he's tied up for a few years.

I think Voynov would be a perfect fit for wings, offer up Franzen and Kindl. Salary cap hit is slightly more than $4mm.

Well I'm a state guy. Even so, I have a lot of family from Rochester, some of which went to school with him. They relayed to me that he is kind of a sad story. Mamas boy, not a lot of friends, kinda weird, not well liked by teammates. If someone knows better correct me, but from all I've heard he's an Emmerton with a Franzen body
