Nobody we really wanted or confident the guy we’d take would still be there? 

But hey, extra pick today.  Thanks, Kenny.

i love these moves… in a deep draft more than ever. can’t wait to track that 58th pick over the next few years.

Brilliant!  Wings could have had

Gautheir, Mueller, or Mantha now they still get at least one of them…

AND #58 too.

I’m thinking Mantha.

This sounds like a great move, especially given how deep this draft is supposed to be.

Thought they’d take him, but must get more competitive, if those evaluations are correct.  Don’t need perimeter player.

Quite the move by Ken again.  Sharks must have really wanted that player available at 18 to move up just 2 spots and give up 2d round too.  Detroit still got one of the players on their radar.

His grandfather is four-time Stanley Cup champion Andre Pronovost—he played 556 games for Montreal, Boston, Detroit and Minnesota between the 1956-57 and 1967-68 seasons.

And thanks to the current hailstorm, my NHL network/Satellite is dead so I couldn’t see the pick.

I think TSN is streaming the draft, not sure if you can get it in the states though
