My favorite Ken Holland catch phrase?...."With the 6th pick in the 2018 NHL draft...The Detroit Red Wings are proud to select...from the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.... Filip...Zadina."

It makes me a bit nervous that we took leftovers with both our first rounders.

That's one way to look at it... :eh:

You certainly do have a penchant for spinning a positive into a negative... Only you would be "nervous" with us taking the 3rd-4th ranked prospect at 6, and the 10th-12th ranked prospect at 30...

Zadina was #2 behind Rasmus Dahlin on the Red Wings draft chart. That's been confirmed.

I'm still curious as to how much it cost for the 'blackmarket'  Red Wings Zadina  jersey the staff purchased in the parking lot during the commercial break?

They couldn't have brought one with them from Detroit - knowing that Zadina would fall onto their lap - could they?

:rolleyes:

Trust me, I want to be ecstatic.  But I've learned to be cautious about things that are too goid to be true falling into my lap.  There is normally a catch.  I'm thinking Veleno's "lower body" injury from a year and a half back might be a little more serious than what our scouts projected it to be.  Exceptional status > High First Rounder > Mid First Rounder > passed up with 15 or so picks until Holland calls his name = Why?  Something is off there.  As far as Zadina goes, less nervous about that.  Players in the 3-9 range all had pretty equal value, so we probably just benefited slightly from 3, 4, and 5 drafting for need rather than BPA.

The patch was stuck on!  = Holland has no clue.  At least someone brought a patch of all the top 5 guys in case it happened.

Yeah, I heard that as well (although I disagree with them having him ahead of Svechnikov...), but I was more so talking about the consensus around the league / scouts, not Detroit specifically.

If you want to be cautiously optimistic about Veleno that's completely fine, but I'm ecstatic with that pick. I was hoping we'd trade up into the middle of the first to grab him if he were still on the board in the 15-20 range. It turns out we didn't need to. I'm not sure why you'd be worried about a "lower body" injury from a year and a half ago when he's played great hockey and put up solid numbers for a solid year since then. There's nothing "off" with him falling, other than each team having one player ranked above him. Very talented young players fall in the draft every single year, only to go on to make several teams that passed on them, regret their decision. This is no exception. He will be a highly skilled top 6 center in a few years. Mark it.
