And Mrazek is the next Hasek right? Thats how the fake narrative goes

Ok you might be getting confused. I am not sold nor am I writing off Mrazek. he is still young enough and has time. What he does and which way he goes is yet to be seen. He has talent. But so do a lot of people. What they do with it is the unknown.

Watching Coreau play tonight shows why I think we need another G. he is not that good. At 25 how much more developing is there?

Now the 3rd round is where there are a ton of Dman that will be available. Most rankings/mock drafts have 15+ dmen going from 50th to 75th. That is a bunch. That is where we will be picking with the pick we got from Tor.

Here are a few of the guys I like:

Scooter Brickley 6-3/190 Rhed, plays for Muskegon, Michigan kid, committed to WMU for college next year.

Jacob Paquette 6-2/200 LHed, plays for Kingston.

Jockton Chainey 6-1/200 LHed p[lays for Halifax.

Luke Martin 6-2/200 RHed, plays for the USN U-18 team, committed to U of M.

Max Gildon 6-3/195 LHed plays for the USN U-17 team

Tommy Miller 6-2/195 RHed, plays for the USN U-18 team, committed to MSU

There are of course others. Point is, lots of good D prospects in this area of the draft. Grab 1 and go.

Mrazek has already been drafted... :lol:

In a late round, I hope Holland gives Kelton Hatcher a call. Great bloodline, nice D prospect.

Derian's son? That would be awesome. I've always been dissapointed Hatcher wasn't a Wing for long. Damn salary cap.

Well rich at least we agree on that. Mrazek is the new pulkkinen. Wait till hes gone. U wont miss him.

 Yeah cut Mrazek or trade him for a 7th that's a good idea. You must be Richdgs second account. If he were 6'5" and could drop the mitts he would be the greatest thing since probert right?

You're a dunce if you think Mrazek and Pulkkinens talents are the same. Yeah cut Mrazek or trade him for a 7th that's a good idea. You must be Richdgs second account. If he were 6'5" and could drop the mitts he would be the greatest thing since probert right?

#7 could net us Foote.

We don't need any Foote Fungus in Detroit, even if it's the spawn of the the original

I like it, but they can do better. Or worse, depending how you look at it.

It would be hillarious to me if the first season we miss, we win the lottery and draft nolan patrick.

Id feel very comfortable moving tatar and gus for D help too at that point

#7 pick doesn't satisfy me. Unless its #1 or #2 we better win games. Top 2 picks can turn your team around. #7 would not, especially not in the Red Wings org that would immediately go back to playoffs and be stuck with more #15-20 picks the following years.

It doesn't matter if we finish last or 14th, the lottery will determine the draft order. Finishing 5th doesn't mean we are picking 5th. The record only determines the % of drafting higher or lower.

I am not sold on Mrazek nor have I written him off. Anyone that does either is silly. he has great talent. He has had stretches of being a very good G. he has also had stretches of being a very bad G. Who is the true Mrazek? No one knows. With Howard out I would play him as much as possible because we do need to know who/what he is. Is a a true #1? A backup? A Journeyman? a AHL G? Only way to learn the answer is to play. Then the team can adjust from there.

So, I guess we're tanking it then? I don't trust Holland with a top 5 pick, let alone the #1.

Holland won't tank the season. And i don't trust him with a top pick either. He'd probably trade it for a 25th-31st pick (Vegas picks this draft, no?) and an over 35 veteran.
