Draft Preparation

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

The Red Wings had their amateur scouting meetings last week. There was much debate. Wright indicated they're still formulating their list.

"I don't think it was a unanimous decision going into these meetings," Wright said. "To be honest with you, the decision hasn't been made. We don't spend a lot of time trying to figure out who's taking who. We're trying to identify where we want to go and make sure we have those guys in order....

"You got some really good puck-moving defensemen, you got some smaller offensive dynamic (defensemen), you got some big, powerful wingers, you got some skilled wingers," Wright said. "Up the middle it might not be as deep as in previous years. With that said, there's still good players.

"I think the industry has identified some separation with certain players. Going into last year's draft it was a little harder to evaluate because you could have gone either way and there's guys that emerged late."

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
