Take Your Pick

Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press answers a few questions...

Does picking fourth set back the rebuild? I was really hoping for at least second.

Drafting second would have given general manager Steve Yzerman a choice of Tim Stützle and Quinton Byfield, who are expected to go after Lafrenière, the consensus top pick. Instead, Yzerman is likely to choose from top forwards including Marco Rossi, Cole Perfetti, Lucas Raymond and Alexander Holtz, and defenseman Jamie Drysdale. Picking lower isn’t a setback if Yzerman makes the right choice.

Picking lower than LaFreniere won’t make a difference if Stevie Y makes the right choice.  OK Dim Wit HSJ what is the right choice??

She actually gets paid to spew idiotic ideas.

Trade her to Toronto, she would fit right in.

When I watched the Yzerman interview stream after the lottery I heard her voice and realized how pleasant it’s been without listening to her every post game.

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.
