Draft choice acquired with Kyle Brodziak by dealing Mike Green to the Oilers.

Quote:
Pick in the Mike Green trade is a 4th-rounder in 2020, goes to a third in 2021 if the Oilers make the final 4 and Green plays 50 percent of the games in rds. 1 and 2. Wings retain 50% salary.


OK.

Athanasiou heads to Edmonton as well, for 2 2nd rounders (!!!) and Sam Gagner.

Kenny just can't help himself. They should see if he's interested in taking on Abdelkader's or Glendening's contracts.

Continuing the discussion from the Draft Lottery thread...

I'm surprised Askarov hasn't made too many top tens, because I'm pretty sure one goalie starved team will take the plunge after the top 3 goes.


I think that'd be a mistake. And that's nothing against Askarov, but trying to build around a goalie almost never pays off. The Devils did it, but they, of course, had a generational talent who stayed at the top of his game for almost the entirety of his career. Montreal is a prime example of why you don't do it. Price was hands-down the best goalie in the league when he was in his prime, but injuries have largely reduced him to a shell of his former self. The Wings have bigger needs, especially if Zadina doesn't pan out as hoped.

Most mock drafts I've seen have a top three of Lafreniere/Byfield/Stutzle in various combinations, which allows the Red Wings the option of getting the top defenseman in this draft, or taking a top forward. Jamie Drysdale seems like the smart pick, but there's also Cole Perfetti, Marco Rossi, and Lucas Raymond, all with the potential to be elite forwards in the NHL.


I'm not suggesting that Detroit build the team around Askarov. I view as more of a significant piece in part of the rebuild. All the prospect raters seem to think that he is a possible generational or at least an All-Star calibre NHL goaltender. Does he come with risk? Of course, he does, but, so do the other prospects at #4. He seems the prospect with the greatest upside. For me, that makes him the best prospect left at any position. He also fits a significant need that currently exists with the Red Wings.


My best guess is that if Yzerman wants Askarov and believes him to be an elite franchise goalie in the future, he's just gonna go ahead and take him. He probably could have traded down to take Moritz Seider but just took him 6th overall. I can understand why. You trade down and then that guy gets taken earlier, you did it for nothing. Besides, that's starting to look like a savvy pick now.

Latest Mock Draft has the Wings taking forward Lucas Raymond.

Max Bultman builds the case for Detroit to take Drysdale.
