Winning May Mean The Wings Are Losing Out At A Shot For Shane Wright

from Mark Falkner of the Detroit News,

With each passing day, the odds of the Detroit Red Wings winning the Shane Wright Sweepstakes become slimmer and slimmer.

The worst teams have the best chances in the draft lottery to select Wright, the Kingston Frontenacs captain and No. 1-rated prospect for the 2022 NHL Draft in Montreal on July 7-8, 2022.

Heading into Thursday's game against the Washington Capitals at Little Caesars Arena, the Red Wings, led by top-six draft picks Lucas Raymond and Moritz Seider, are tied with the Capitals for the fifth-best record in the 16-team Eastern Conference and are climbing in the eight-team Atlantic Division with more points (16) than the two-time Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning (15).

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.
