Who’s Headed To Seattle?

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Here is a list of unprotected Wings, with the likeliest to be picked by Seattle at the top. There are also pros and cons associated with each player, relative to why Seattle would, or would not, pick the player.

Troy Stecher

- Pros: Depending how the Kraken fill out the remainder of their roster, a player like Stecher does a nice job complementing the lineup.

The Wings saw that last season, as Stecher supplied energy to the lineup with his all-out style of play and had impressive defensive analytic numbers.

Stecher is only 27, he has one year left on his contract at an extremely manageable number ($1.7 million) and he’s from nearby Vancouver.

Perfect team guy in the locker room.

- Cons: There are many Stecher types available for Seattle in this draft, some younger and cheaper.

If Seattle decides to load up with some big names, that might be a consideration.

The Kraken might be just as intrigued by younger defenseman Dennis Cholowski off the Wings' unprotected list. Another Vancouver kid, younger (age 23), and under team control for three more years.

read on ($$$) for more names...

I think Stetcher is going to Seattle and I am pretty sure their lineup will be stronger than ours from day 1.
