Mock Draft Time

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

There’s no lack of talent, especially among the top 10 or so players in this draft.

It’s just a matter of who is going where.

Red Wings’ general manager Steve Yzerman talked last week about the unpredictable nature of this particular draft.

“From that third pick to the 12th, or 15 pick, if you ask 31 teams it could be a very different order,” Yzerman said.

But Yzerman also noted, several times, the Wings are going to get an outstanding prospect at No. 6, where they pick.

“We think there’s a good group of players,” he said.

continue for a bit more and in a slideshow mock draft, Kulfan writes..

6. Detroit Red Wings: Trevor Zegras, USNTDP, center. The Wings can go in several directions, but Zegras appears to have the most intriguing potential. With Dylan Larkin, Joe Veleno and Zegras, that’s a lot of talent some day at a crucial spot.

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.
