I’m pleased enough with the Lavoie pick.

I'm coming around on the Broberg pick after reading more about him today. Pronman had him ranked 9th by the end. Mostly just annoyed that they telegraphed this pick a month ago and kept telling the whole world that's who they wanted. Nothing will ever change in Edmonton.

Lavoie pick looks pretty stellar.

Wings drafted no CHL players, a lot of Europeans

Hopefully Hakan has some magic left

I looked through the Hockey News's draft preview issue (which used to be a lot more helpful but is now just nice as a physical object) and

- The Wings' next two defenseman picks (Tuomisto and Johansson) were not in the top 100, but their first three forward picks (Mastrosimone, Grewe, and Phillips) were all in it in slots above their draft position
- Both Mastrosimone and Grewe had Brendan Gallagher as the "best case" comparable
- They had thee Goil's second round pick Lavoie at #14 and Broberg at #21

Fenton on #mnwild draft: "The thing I liked is when guys came up to our table and they were way taller than me. We’ve had some smaller prospects, good hockey players, but every time somebody came up and they were much taller, you got a smile on a lot of our faces."

Based on Nashville I really wanted Fenton. What a mistake. Guy is an idiot. Appears they should have waited and went for Jeff Gorton.

Boldy was a good pick at least, I know exceptionally little about their day two picks.

I do wonder if Fenton is in a tough spot, like if ownership doesn't want him to go Full Rebuild, even though that's what should happen. So he's making half-measures and not very good at doing it.

I can't remember which draft recap made this comment (maybe Chris Peters' at ESPN?) but it said that Nolan Foote didn't make much sense for Tampa because they're all about diminutive forwards and my immediate thought was "Uh, that's why it makes sense for them." I don't know if anyone's necessarily tried to do this, but having a team that's just quick 5'8" 165lb guys doesn't seem like it would work. I guess the Habs came close to this approach a few years ago.

I then thought about how frequently the best player available in a given spot according to Pronman / whoever else was that kind of smaller forward, and it's understandable that teams are going to try to diversify their prospect pool, even that means they're leaving higher upside / skill on the board.

Washington won the Stanley Cup two years ago with a big tough team and a big tough Canadian boy
Tom Wilson, who I saw play minor midget in Toronto. He stirred the drink for the club which helped win
them the Cup. St. Louis Blues won the Cup this year. A big strong tough club, with 16 Canadians, hit and
hit some more. Put out Hertl, Pavelski and Karlsson in the San Jose series. Took no prisoners. MVP
Canadian, saw play here in Toronto, Ryan O’Reilly tough and gritty and co-MVP as far as I’m concerned,
Jordan Binnington, won the Cup for them, also saw him play minor midget, also Canadian. The best
defenceman in the playoffs by far Alex Pietrangelo also a Canadian big tough kid I saw play in Toronto.
Ok Lets go over it…. Tom Wilson, Ryan O’Reilly, Jordan Binnington, Alex Pietrangelo all from Ontario, 16
Canadians on Blues… a Blue print on how to win the Stanley Cup. The Maple Leafs team who needed
jam and sand paper last year drafted; 1 Russian, 2 Fins and 3 Americans all described as rather on the
small size 5’9 to 5’11. The Leafs have gotten smaller and gentler… this team sits among 40000 kids who
love the Leafs… it really does boggle the mind.

It's interesting reading about which member of the Wings staff pushed for which picks. Seider seems to be an Yzerman leading a coalition pick, Tuomisto (who was a much bigger reach) is 100% Tyler Wright, Hakan Andersson pushed for Johansson and Berglund, presumably others. This seems to be a very Hakan-heavy draft, which I'm happy about. I don't think he's flawless but I trust his instincts a lot more than Tyler Wright's.

This draft ranking had Seider at 5 and Grewe at 18 (above Newhook and Knight!)

Basically that's the only draft ranking that matters
