    I like this kid a lot. Could be a good option after our first pick in rounds 2-3. Reminds me of Cam Atkinson.

    Not HIFK, but definitely Lundell. They were watching the U20 Four Nations tournament in Helsinki. Speaking of which, Jokke Nevalainen put out an recap today on the tournament on Dobber for anybody that couldn't catch any of the games

    The more highlights of Byfield I see, the more I want him. In a few years we could have a fearsome top 9

    Zadina-Byfield-Mantha
    Berruzzi-Larkin-Fabbri
    Rasmussen-Veleno-Athanasiou

    There is a very real possibility we draft in the 6-10 range. You have to do your due diligence on everyone. I think Lundell is a great pick from 4 on.

    I think he is reasonable after 4 and does play like a real center in my, albeit limited viewings.

    I knew more than half the hockey players on my college team, and they were definitely listed taller than actual height including the guys that got drafted. Nobody got listed less than 5'9" regardless of actual height. I used to joke that they must have measured in Canadian inches. (Lame exchange rate joke.)

    Guys from Russian leading sports media Sport-Express have mentioned that Yegor Chinakhov is on the Red Wings' radar.

    Interesting to say the least..however, have they given up on Zadina? Is that what this is suggesting? Wings have more of a need for left wings, centers and goalies.

    I think the center depth in this draft is shaping up to be very good.

    After the assumed top 2, you have Holloway, Lundell, Lapierre, Perfetti, Rossi, Zary. I think the centers that go in the 2-15 range in this draft could be better than most drafts. Lots of good talent at forward this year.

    I think what we need to remember is non of these guys are sure fire, blue chip prospects like a McDavid or a Lindros, or a Crosby. They are ‘prospects’. They are going to need time like most players picked at their position in the draft.

    I would rather them develop slower and milk a couple more top 5 picks to be honest. This team is going to need a crap load of talent to become contenders again. I don’t want to see a few overachieving young players keep us in a playoff bubble limbo for the next 6 years.

    Don't think that it is connected to Zadina in any way, it is more about adding depth to attacking winger prospect pipeline.

    Yeah, just build a talent surplus, so you can make trades from a surplus. Maybe trade somebody else, just add overall skill on the team. Some worse players will drop out from the race.

    I don't see Perfetti or Rossi (both of who I really like) playing center in the pro game but I could see the others sticking in the middle.

    Even if you take those 2 out, I’d still consider that a pretty strong group of centers.

    Especially since I totally forgot Stutzle.

    Detroit is 2nd last to Minnesota, who has 2 less games played. Detroit looks to be in the mix for a top-3 pick this year.

    Does the big Centre or the impressive winger get your vote at #1 overall?

    Draper is pretty bang on with his assessment of Byfield (hopefully, the article hasn't been shared yet) :


    Red Wings director of amateur scouting Kris Draper said he'll have traveled to see each of the top 15 draft prospects by the end of the month, including a trip to Rimouski, Quebec, to see Alexis Lafreniere, the consensus No. 1 pick and to Sweden to see the third- and fourth-ranked players, Alexander Holtz and Lucas Raymond.

    Draper and the Red Wings' scouting staff already know about No. 2-ranked Byfield, a 6-4, 215-pound center who has been compared favorably to 10-time Stanley Cup champion Jean Beliveau (Canadiens), three-time Cup champ Evgeny Malkin (Penguins) and 50-goal scorer Leon Draisaitl (Oilers)

    And a Red Wings tidbit :

    "Honestly, if Detroit picks me that would be awesome," Byfield said. "A lot of good players have gone through that organization like (Pavel) Datsyuk, (Nicklas) Lidstrom and (Steve) Yzerman. My favorite team is Tampa Bay, and Yzerman was the general manager there so that would be cool as well."

    There's a decent chance that Stutzle ends up being a full-time winger, though.

    Still, it's a good group of centers there at the top. Defensemen? Not so much. But centers and wingers? Yes.
