12 left-handed forwards...

I know you don't put much stock into handedness, but holy s*** man, we need some balance up front. I don't think it makes a huge difference at 5-on-5, but our power-play will suffer. We need at least one Zadina / Mantha level right-handed sniper to add to that top six / power-play units.

Other than that, I agree. Great looking forward corp.

I would love to see that exact line up with Zetterberg on opening night.  Youth is a good thing.

I couldnt believe he was still on the board at 6, the whole Wings table probably busted a nut when Arizona passed on him.. What a steal. We needed D, but they couldn't pass on that. Ended up getting some good D and G prospects later on. Successful draft.

Zadina had a prettyyy shootout goal after scoring the dev camp scrimmage GWG (on an awesome feed from Ras).

Ras, Zadina, Veleno, and Smith all looked great.. most of the goalies, not so great :P 7-6 OT final.

Ya, I thought I heard that. With this being the case, I can see him starting the year in GR but playing his way out very quickly. 

Yeah, him being AHL-eligible prolly hurts his cause re: making the team out of camp and sticking. I'm hoping he has a lights-out training camp and leaves them with no choice but to make room for him on the roster. And if they stick him on the farm instead, I hope he tears the AHL apart.

I would prefer he play the full season with the Wings, but if they are going to send him down to GR with some stints in the NHL, I hope they keep it under 25 games so he can still be Calder eligible the next season.
