i know all along the Wings have said the compensation was a 3rd. round pick within the next 3 years...but....didn't the NHL levy the pay scale for compensation directly related to price of contract?
im just angling for a 2nd or 1st pick.
considering Babcock is now richer than 70% of players currently on rosters.
that sounds like high end picks to me.
Mclellan, Peters,Maclean, Nill, Yzerman....what would they have been worth? 7th rounders?
anywho...the question i have been asking myself all day is...Babcock knows who were looking at in the draft, and knows names of "secret" late round players. is he gonna swindle the wings on draft day?
shanahan: "hey mike, welcome to our draft table..are ya ready for the big day?"
babcock: "brendan, throw that s*** list away, here is the new formula. we are 15 steps ahead of them red wings all day."
shanahan: "but...mike...we have extensive details on all our.."
babcock: "zip it....you want to win...or just show up?"...."thats what i thought (deathstare)"
