Well, that was some terrible draft picking on the Kracken’s part.

Personally, I’d take Cholo back if he can be sent here to GR. But I think you have to keep a guy you claim off waivers on the NHL squad for at least a month, right?

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Seider and Raymond got to know each other last season playing in the Swedish Hockey League.

“In the end, nobody wants to stay in a hotel room 24/7,” Seider said. “I have enough room to take him in a little bit under my wing, and joke around a little bit. We’re definitely having a great time together.”

The rookies will be making their NHL debuts Thursday when the Wings open the season against two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning.

The two young players are considered cornerstones in the Wings’ rebuild. Expectations from fans are high.

Seider said he doesn’t feel any extra pressure.

“We’re just coming to the rink to become better hockey players and show the world the the Red Wings are taking big steps ahead,” Seider said. “We’re excited for this season and you’ll see that probably Thursday night.”

Seider, 20, has already spent a professional season in both Grand Rapids (AHL) and Rogle in the SHL. He had above-average seasons in both.

That experience, along with Seider’s mental make-up, should give him an edge, according to coach Jeff Blashill.

“He seems to be really strong mentally and that can help in a number of ways,” Blashill said. “One of which is not being wowed by anything, wowed by playing in the NHL or (being) in the moment. He can just go out and go through the different challenges that young players will go through.

Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News with a blurb on each of the players on the roster like this…

Analysis: Had an outstanding rookie season in Carolina, but Hurricanes were comfortable trading him away. Is Nedeljkovic the Wings’ goaltender of the future?

Analysis: Seemingly healthy after back surgery a year ago, DeKeyser is looking like his pre-surgery self — which would be a big boon for the Wings’ blue line.

Analysis: Erne was the surprise of last season, providing an offensive spark that was entirely unexpected. Can be a boost offensively when playing with confidence, while supplying grit and size.

Analysis: Truly developed his two-way game last season, there’s no concern there, but Zadina has yet to show he can consistently score in the NHL. Needs to improve in that area.
