The Wings Are Well Prepared For The Draft

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Yzerman, amateur scouting director Kris Draper, and some of Yzerman’s staff are expected to be at Little Caesars Arena, while European scouts will be joining in virtually.

“We’re pretty well-organized and prepared to go,” Yzerman said. “Most of our (scouts) will be scattered. All our guys in Europe will be home, all our guys in Canada will remain in Canada, apart from (chief amateur scout) Jesse Wallin.

“We’ll have everybody on a call throughout the entire process. We’re comfortable with how it’s going to operate.”

With 10 overall picks, the Red Wings will have many opportunities to fortify the organization and find potential building blocks for the core of the team.

The Wings, said Yzerman, know what type of players they want to draft.

“We take a lot of things into account,” Yzerman said. “Hockey IQ, different skills and abilities that make a player a good player. They have to have a combination of the things we feel are important. Good hockey players come in a lot of forms. There’s no one characteristic that is going to be a telling factor.

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.
