Holland is a hunk of s***

That's why Holland gathered all those 3rds, so he can draft unknown D thatll spend the next 10 years NOT in Detroit.

No pick we had in this draft would end up in Detroit next year. Not even the 9th. Not even if it were Tippett, Viliardi, Liljegren, whoever. Development takes time.

A scouting report:

A raw, puck-moving, offensive defenseman with great scoring instincts. Most notable for his 4 goals and 5 assists in 1 game for Almunta in U16s. Since then, he's continued to put up great offensive numbers, including 7 points in 4 games for his U19 team internationally. Struggled a little in his first season with Sweden's second tier league, particularly in his play without the puck and defending stronger attackers. He still managed to finish 2nd in scoring for U19 forwards. There's skill here but he needs time to develop his d-zone game and fill out his frame physically.

He was ranked much lower than where we actually picked him, but the good thing about it is...this might very well be Hakans pick. ;)

No, Holland picking a player that is ranked much lower?

There are no more Haken gems. Holland is just wasting this entire draft.

I personally saw some of the guys we passed on for Rasmussen play, so I could be underwhelmed about that one with some facts. I know nothing about Lindstrom except where he's ranked so I'll hope for the best considering Andersson's history.

Sounds like a reach. Really hope they see something in this kid. The Wings are notorious for reaches. But a lot of them pay off.

Maybe in the past.  Not so much recently.  The last late rounds steals we had were Pav and Z.
