Discuss the topic please and not each other.

Talking about other people whining or any other personal attack will result in suspension. And it would be really lame to get suspended in the offseason.

Most teams don't get better by trading in the draft. That's what free agency is for. I don't know anything about these kids Holland drafted but they replenish our center prospects. Holland can't magically make this a better draft, and everyone seems pretty high on Larkin. Draft day is the worst day to complain, because no one has any idea how these kids will pan out in 5 years. But drafting three centers helps increase the chances that one of them turns out to be good.

I agree completely, I just wish we would trade some of our spare parts for some late round draft picks...

The only other thing I'd like to see this draft is for Kindl and Andersson to be traded so we can draft 4 guys in the 7th round :w00t:

I'd like to see that too, but I imagine most teams have players internally they want to evaluate and they know the Wings (and other teams) will have to put players through waivers. There doesn't seem to be a big market for non-veteran players, especially those that aren't 'gritty'.

Holmström was second best scorer in the U18 world championship after Nylander last season, apparently needs to work on his skating though.

ANOTHER lefty... Wow, not a single right handed shooter in the entire draft...

most people shoot left, that is just nature.

I really like this last pick. A Russian with great size. :w00t:

There's no doubt that he's lazy and sucks then. ;)

Overall I'm happy with this years draft, just by the initial scouting reports and bios of these guys. I do wish we had taken a couple right handed shooters, but it is what it is.. I hope a few of them turn out to be steals in the later rounds.
