Detroit's Prospect Pipeline Ranked 9th

09/01/2021 at 9:15am EDT

from Corey Pronman of The Athletic,

Detroit has had a lot of high picks and picks overall the past few years, leading to a system that stretches for a while — led by Moritz Seider, Lucas Raymond, Simon Edvinsson and Sebastian Cossa. The Red Wings system is the story of how a rebuild goes: it’s typically slow and steady, some picks don’t age as well as you would hope (Michael Rasmussen, Filip Zadina) and some do (Jonatan Berggren, Albert Johansson, Elmer Soderblom). There is still quite a bit of work ahead for Detroit to become a relevant NHL team again, but it is trending in the right direction with a young foundation forming.

2020 Ranking: No. 18

2021 NHL Draft grade: B

1. Moritz Seider, RHD, Rogle-SHL

Tier: Projected bubble all-star and top of lineup player

Skating: Average
Puck Skills: Below-average
Hockey Sense: Average
Compete: Above-average

Seider had as good a season as you could have hoped for, as the best defenseman in the SHL last season and at the world championships....

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
