If anything that made me happy. Heard nothing about how this draft is weak.

There is no weak, no strong. No win, no lose. No draft. There is only Andrei Svechnikov.

Keep an eye out for Andrei Svechnikov, 2018 draft frontrunner

Andrei Svechnikov shows why he's 'Russia's next big thing' at WJAC

– Do you have a favorite NHL team?

– Right now I like Detroit because my brother was drafted by them. I’d like to get there in the future, my dream is to play with my brother on the same line.

Would really like a higher pick than Chicago, but I'll take what we can get

Agreed.

But at this point - I'm willing to take any opposing team's 1st round pick if Holland can acquire one.

Apparently the Habs want to improve their forward scoring depth, but many feel Vanek somehow burnt his bridge with the Habs a few years ago when he was there for a short period of time.

Only a total imbecile would dress any player they mIght trade. We'll see if our GM is indeed an imbecile. 

:lol:

While I too wonder what Holland is thinking...He's certainly not an imbecile, but he does have his flaws ;)

Source: No lack of suitors for Tomas Vanek. Wings currently asking for two 1st round picks or a 1st and two 2nds, plus a mid-level prospect.

The Wings are not anxious to trade Mike Green. No urgency to do so. Would require an already established young player or big pick package.

.....Two firsts? Holland you dog

Credible?

Scrolled through an entire thread to see if anyone would ask this. Seems everyone is treating this guy like he's credible, but I don't know him.

 I mean't was the tweeter a credible source. 

Seems at least a little legit. He's a sports radio guy/editor in Detroit or something. He's also reporting that Ownership ORDERED (not granted permission) Holland to sell.

Just now, amato said:

If Vanek got us two first round picks, he might be the best one year contract we've ever signed :P 

Seriously, whatever we get for him will be excellent asset management by Holland.  Our GM certainly makes mistakes, but this could be a big win for him...

You know, my first thought after the Smith trade was "maybe they never sold because Mr. I valued the streak so much...but his son wanted to rebuild, and just now ordered Holland to do so".

Or this is the first time they've been in last place at the deadline for 25+ years.

Maybe, but honestly..should've sold and rebuild a few years ok. It was obvious this team wasn't going to win it, first round exits, second round at best, and that shouldn't be enough.

Can't be true.  Would be the dumbest move in the history of sports.

Maybe Kenny's passive-aggressively threatening to expose Vanek to potential injury if the interested party doesn't pony up within the next hour? That would be kinda badass.
