Draft expert Russ Cohen, a regular on NHL Network Radio, also thinks the Red Wings’ second rounder Shai Buium should be viewed as a first rounder. He was taken early in the second round (36th overall) by the Red Wings.
“Buium moved up the charts and he has late first round talent,” said Cohen, owner of the Sportsology website and a contributor to EP Rinkside. “Buium’s offense has been emerging. His passing is a strength. He has a knack for seeing plays develop. Finding those spaces is very important, especially if you have creative forwards to work with. ”
