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.

Hope you are right.  Larkin is making a few GMs look bad right now.

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

Every hot chick is someone's leftovers.

Somewhere there's a Red Wings staffers kid wearing a draft day Hughes sweater

Glad we didn't draft that no jaw line, walmart wolverine, twig boi

They're holding on to it for next year. All they have to do is remove the 8's from it.
