Yeah and it's not like King is a bad player, the guy can play for sure and their fourth line is feared around the NHL. The problem with drafting so many small guys in all the later rounds is that the Wings might still think, they are ahead of the curve when it comes to Euros which simple isn't true, other teams are sending their scouts to Sweden, Swiss, Finland and the other top leagues too so it's much harder to find a gems. Would be a good time to change the approach and start drafting big, physical kids.
For the most part they have.
It used to be six small skilled euros, and two or three flyers on big guys.
But now its more the other way around.
It just takes time to get them in the system, were seeing that now with sheahan, jurco, and hopefully this season with mantha.
