I think the first round of the 2014 draft will be one of the most exciting in years. Will the first overall pick be traded? Will Detroit keep their 15th overall pick or use it to get a top 4 defenseman or top 6 forward? There is a lot of lead up to this years draft and I'm sure it won't disappoint.

I hope the Wings use this pick to lure a player from another team. It's a weak enough draft that I'm not as torn as usual for trading it way.

Can't wait till 7pm ET!

I predict that Holland will trade down and pick Barbashev. Or they keep the pick and select Kempe.

Ritchie, Tuch, Perlini, Larkin one of those 4 pls stay the hell away from guys like Ehlers, Barbashev. If they pick him might as well throw the pick away because he will go to the khl if things arent going his way Also enough with the small soft euros need some hometown boys and size and grit

Every year the talking heads build up the draft saying how many trades there's going to be.
With how much kh has been rumored to be involved in, coupled with a weak draftT his is the first year I'm almost believing the hype.

I think Kenny likes your ideas so much he combines them. Trades back and takes Kempe.

Yeah, I see him trading down.  Someone they like is going to slide down the chart given how bunched together everyone is after the top five or six picks.  I called Kempe a few months ago, and I'm sticking with it.  They'll trade back two or three spots, still get their man, and get a 2nd to replace the one lost in the Legwand clusterf***. 

 

Edit:  Larkin wouldn't be a bad pick either, and he's a center (Tyler Wright seemed to indicate this would matter).  But I'm sticking with Kempe.

Agreed. Holland is going to do what he can to get that 2nd rounder back.

The last two first rounders were Sheahan and Mantha. Combine that with the fact that Nastasiuk and Bertuzzi were taken in round 2 and it seems less likely that you'll have anything to complain about on the "small soft euro" front.

 

Just look at what Wright has to say:

 

 

"We're confident we're going to get a good player at 15," Wright said. "Whether it's a forward or defenseman, we'll take the best player available."

 

 

"I think the center position is a major piece of a building block in a lot of organizations," Wright said. "You can never have enough centers."

 

 

"We'd like maybe a right-handed shot on the back end – size, speed through the middle of the ice," Wright said. "You can never have enough puck-moving D and scoring wingers.

 

"Passports are really irrelevant," Wright said. "We have to be visionaries. We have to start projecting who's going to be the best player 4-5 years down the road. The Red Wings have done a tremendous job developing players once you get them in the system. We just got to get good players. We want passionate, hard-working players who won't stop at anything to get into the National Hockey League. Passion and character are big to me."

 

All signs point to a big, mobile, hard working center.

TSN but I think you have to be Canadian...

Wow music to my ears man let us all hope Ritchie falls out of the top 10 so we can get this guy.

 

As for you have to be Canadian, just google for Canadian proxies and you should be good to go.

Tuch, Larkin, McCann, and Milano are my top four for the Wings at 15. Honestly, though I kinda want to trade the pick for some help on the back end. Either that, or trade down to aquire a 2nd round pick.

I have a feeling Vancouver will be selecting first overall. Sam Reinhart. Calling it right now.

Whos the second best defender after Ebklad ? Looks like the draft is very forward heavy

I think Haydn Fleury is the number two D-Man in the draft, with DeAngelo, and Honka close behind. Fleury is 6'3" and 205 pounds, the latter two are under 6'.

DeAngelo is the guy that was suspended a couple of times for making racist comments to his own teammate. I think he'll fall pretty far in the draft because of that.
