    Congrats on getting Svechnikov. Here's a shift by shift video I made to demonstrate his style of play:

    Like the pick, but need to see more in terms of the other more crucial positions. We're not getting better without centers and defensemen.

    Can he play centre? Could he be transitioned to centre?

    I believe he played some center this year, so there is a possibility he could project there.

    One thing to keep in mind: there was speculation early in the year that Svechnikov has it in him to convert to center. He did play down the middle a bit.

    But yeah, he definitely has the skill, the size, and the skating. I can see why he was BPA.

    pretty happy with this pick(and surprised that they took a Russian) but the Wings REALLY need to look into trading a Winger or two

    edit: although it kinda sounds like maybe he might end up being a Center

    If he can play center i'm thrilled with this pick. If he can't, i'm pretty indifferent towards the pick since we won't be seeing him in the NHL for at least 3-4 years.

    His best stretch this year was at C near the end of the year, put up something like 2.2ish PPG over 12-13 games if I remember correctly.

    Hopefully he's not a KHL threat with our development process...

    He has no standing contract with the KHL and has said he only wants to play in the NHL.

    Pronman had Svechnikov ranked 9th.

    Elite skater who can really pick his spots when releasing the puck. Doesn't need much room to execute and has great quickness in his hands

    Todd Cordell ‏@ToddCordell 13m13 minutes ago
    Svechnikov is the most classic Red Wings pick ever. High-end skill. Definitely not 18 players better than him in terms of pure talent.


    His combination of size and elite offensive skills should have teams drooling, so I'll be surprised if he does slide into the mid-teens.
