Well to be fair, we can say this about ANYONE that’s not working out. 

At the B. Smith/Mantha age (25/26), yes.  Time to unload then.  At 23 and in a player's first year of developing a new role, no.  Im sure Ras didnt have 4th line shut down center + pk/face off expert in mind when he was dreaming of his NHL future.  Thats what Yzerman and Blash want out of him, and that's what he's trying to do.  The guy is 6'6" and has a huge reach.  I could see him being great in our 4C role if he gets a bit stronger and a half step faster over the next 2 seasons.  You can see he's just not quite fast enough and not quite physical enough right now.  He needs gym work.

I dont mind that Rasmusen doesnt score if hes playing well defensively what I cant stand about big ras is that a breath of wind knocks him off the puck. Hes way to passive/weak for such a large man. He spends more time on his knees than a $3 *****.

yes.  as i said above, he needs to dedicate time in the gym.  that will be his undoing as an nhler if he doesnt put the time in.  he's 20 lbs too light (like dekeyser), and a half step too slow.  His reach with his long arms and long stick is incredible.  But he needs to be the one pushing others around.  He's getting outworked right now because he's not strong enough in upper or lower body.  Wings have had a strength coach issue for a long time now.  Dont know why they cant fix that.

So with the Fabbri signing the left side forward is pretty much #lockedup for next year

Bertuzzi - Larkin - Raymond
Vrana - Suter - Zadina
Fabbri - Veleno - ????
Erne - Rasmussen - Stephens

Edvinsson - Seider
Oesterle - Hronek
??????? - Lindstrom

Nedeljkovic
????????

Needs: 2nd line RW, 2nd pairing LHD, 2nd string G

All other depth needs can be filled from within. We need someone who can force young Zadina down to the 3rd line, and Oesterle down to the 3rd pairing.

I'm saying Zadorov, Bryan Rust, and Joren van Pottleberghe... then shop some AHL guys and call it an offseason.

Bertuzzi - Larkin - Raymond <---------- keep our supreme top line churning
Vrana - Suter - Rust <-------------------- Suter is weak, but Rust & Vrana may elevate him, Veleno/Ras stepping up here would be crazy good
Fabbri - Veleno - Zadina <--------------- Now that could be a good 3rd scoring line
Erne - Rasmussen - Stephens <-------- A checking line that isn't just AHL scrubs

Edvinsson - Seider <---------------------- f*** with us
Zadorov - Hronek <------------------------ Perfectly balanced between giant violent shutdown D and smol puck mover, bring Fils gritty side backout
Oesterle - Lindstrom <-------------------- Two very solid two-way Dmen

Nedeljkovic <------------------------------- Mini Hasek is mini Hasek
van Pottleberghe <------------------------ Probably the biggest ? on the team. If he sucks bad it would hurt and we should waiver hunt goalies.
 

In the wake you have Pearson, Berggren, Sebrango, McIsaac ready to jump in

Seems about right.  I think Forsberg and Lindholm are pipe dreams, so probably a good idea not to get any hopes up.

Obviously Forsberg + Lindholm would be stellar. I just like to assume Yzerman won't be in a bidding war for the top UFAs at this stage

Need to go center. We have no shot at Wright or Savoie, so I guess we should target Logan Cooley or Conner Geekie?

Pluses - Bomb Shot, Offensive Hockey IQ

Minuses - Skates like he's Quasimodo, looks like he's Quasimodo, Who knows if he can actually play defense - all his highlights are on the power play

If we draft in the middle and he's around, I say we take a chance on him.  Got the frame, offensive hockey awareness, and overall mobility, so at least he check as few boxes.

As usual I don't know any of these guys...Don't care who the Wings select - as long as Yzerman/Verbeek/scouts nab 1 of the best players in the draft.

As much as we need a center - I'd rather see the best guy available drafted regardless of his position.

At that point in the draft, there will be a few guys who would be relatively equal in regards to "BPA". There will most likely be at least one C in the mix.

Matt Savoie is an interesting one. He's ranked as high as #2 and as low as #7. Plays center and shoots right.

Yzerman has never shied away from small forwards before. If he drops into our range I could see him being our choice.

His older brother Carter Savoie was drafted by the Oilers and is playing at the U of Denver with Buium, Mazur, and Tuomisto. He's the leading scorer there and I believe just made the Canada WJC roster. Maybe we can send Leddy to Edmonton in exchange for Carter?
