Detroit Prospects Ranked In The Middle Of The Pack

from the Detroit News,

The Detroit Red Wings 2019-20 season likely will be another one of rebuilding, only under new leadership that has a familiar face in general manager Steve Yzerman.

So, while there's plenty of interest in what the Wings might do this season, there's always going to be interest in who might be coming to Detroit in the near future.

ESPN weighed in Wednesday with its NHL prospect pipeline rankings, slotting the Red Wings at No. 15 in the 31-team league.

"The Red Wings have been doing some significant work on their prospect system over the past two drafts and in the free-agent market," writes Chris Peters, an NHL draft and prospects analyst for ESPN. "The top of the system is loaded with talent and players who have room to develop and grow."


Note, I would have linked to the original ESPN piece, but it is behind a paywall that I do not subscribe to.

Chris Peters does a fine job for ESPN with prospects, but ESPN provided little to justify the cost.

Yes you get other sports, but nothing of interest to me besides hockey.

ESPN has a NHL draft and prospect analyst..????

The ESPN website is a joke, and anything remotely interesting is ALWAYS behind a paywall.

I would take anything hockey related from ESPN wit a grain of salt….
