Everyone has their own thoughts on what the wings needed to address in this draft so I thought it might be interesting on how each of us grade how the wing did in this draft.
I feel their top need was right handed defense men and they did end up taking two although I wish they would have gotten one of those top defense men they were gone and the kid they grab will end up being maybe a super star one day. I also question their choice of picking a goalie didn't feel that was a top need. All in all I would give the wings a solid B for this draft. Feel free to disagree with me and give your own grade.

I am being completely honest to all of you. I now am in complete and total shock. Maybe I am crazy but here it goes. I love Cleary and we got him for cheap, but my question now "what is going to happen
to Gustav Nyquist?"
He played very well for us last season. A player that is young and speedy, a player some slotted on the second line if Allfy was playing on line one, a player I couldn't wait to watch this season
He is going to be a player in Grand Rapids?
From every thing I've hear he will start in GR but just long enough to clear of some payroll and a couple of forwards. Now it sounds like Helm will be on the Injured list again this year
I still think we are after a top 4 D-man moving Sammy will help with the money but we have to many player already so I like to think Sammy Eaves hate to say it but Emerton then Totoo if we sign Brunner
If for nothing else for more Bathrooms it bad not to mention the dangerous steps. Don't get me wrong I will miss the Joe when its gone lots of memories there but its time to join the rest of the league with a modern house. I have also been seeing a change in ice surface last 5 years we used to have a great sheet of ice now the puck is bouncing all over the place. We need new lines under the floor not that that can't be done there but is it worth doing there.
