    It seems like he was eligible for the 2006 NHL draft, and no one picked him. Or maybe he didn't opt in, or something.

    There is no "not opting in" anymore.

    He was passed over completely.

    An average prospect (meaning he will never play in the NHL, unless he really breaks out). Does not skate very well, decent defensively though and has some offensive instincts although hockey sense is mediocre. Career minor leaguer at best.

    The Dub will suit him perfect. If he can get some powerskating lessons, that is.

    Do you know what this means? 10 more years of oohing and aahing and slurping of the red wings with posts like "If the red wings can find late round gems like Datsyuk and Zetterberg, and even guys who weren't even drafted, how come my teams GM cannot?"

    I hope he busts just for that, of course, unless he signs with the caps in which case I hope he become an all star norris defenseman :sarcasm:

    If it makes you feel any better, Jim Nill (Wings assistant GM) compares Jonathan Ericsson (dead last pick of the '02 draft) to Jay Bouwmeester...


    ...stylistically. He does add that Ericsson could become a good #3 defenseman and Jay is already a solid #1.
