from Corey Pronman of The Athletic,
At the end of each individual team piece in the farm rankings, I posted a top 10 ranking of the team’s players age 23 and under (with Sept. 15, 2019 as the cutoff) that incorporated both prospects and NHL players. The farm rankings were not based on that type of evaluation, this list is.
9. Detroit Red Wings
Previous U23 ranking: No. 12
Farm Ranking: No. 13
Core: Dylan Larkin, Filip Zadina, Moritz Seider, Filip Hronek, Michael Rasmussen, Dennis Cholowski, Joe Veleno, Jonatan Berggren, Robert Mastrosimone, Jared McIsaac
Key additions: Moritz Seider, Robert Mastrosimone
Detroit fans still have some more pain left in this rebuild, but the Wings are moving in the right direction. They found the hardest piece to get: a true No. 1 center in Larkin. Zadina and Seider are major future pieces, and the season Hronek had was very promising. They likely need a little more in terms of true star talent, but they could come out of this rebuild in a few years with a good team.
