This was a steal by the Wings @ 6 overall...thank you so much Montreal, Ottawa, and Arizona! If the wings hadn't also made out like bandits with their 30th and 33rd picks it'd be easy to call this the biggest heist of the draft, but it was such a great draft for Detroit, it's tough to say which pick was the best bargain. Time will tell I suppose.

Best player I think will be Zadina (top line winger). Biggest steal I think will be Veleno (2nd line center). You're absolutely right though. This was a phenomenal draft by the Wings, and could go down as one of the best since '89... Certainly makes up for the not-so-great draft from last year...

Yeah Veleno falling to 30 was awesome for Detroit. Great skater, great playmaker, solid defensively...just that lackluster shot. Which frankly doesn't seem like that big a deal to me for a center...provided you put some great finishers(Zadina, Mantha, AA) on his wing. If Veleno progresses well and can push for a roster spot, I imagine a line with Mantha and AA on his wings could give teams fits...that's a whole lot of speed to deal with.
