    Why do they go so far off the draft rankings of everyone else? He was rated as low as 159 by ISS Hockey, 85 by TSN, 109 by Hockey Prospects. Seems they could have waited for late 3rd/early 4th to get him. To me this is exactly the kind of pick the Wings make lately. Someone not on anyone else's radar this early, yet they pick him.

    Everyone obsesses over Hakan picks. This is clearly one, yet everyone is still pissed. Let's hope he find found his touch again.

    I definitely agree, but sometimes feels like the Wings are the only ones in on certain guys so soon.

    You don't know what other teams situations are. The wings could be the least to do it

    Hollands probably mad he loses good players two picks before him so what does he do? Pick 5th rounders at 1st overall

    I think Alex Edler has driven this decision for a while. If Hakan pounds the table about someone and they think there is competition catching on they go with it. Remember they basically said they found out people were high on Bertuzzi which his junior coach confirmed later. Hakan probably noticed someone had tracked him on this and argued for the guy early. They thought they could sit there and wait, best part is Vancouver pretty much admitted they went after him because of Hakan's interest.

    You mean like little bert who was projected to be 7th round or undrafted? Ya I've been complaining about that for awhile to.

    Frankly their drafting has been **** for awhile. But we will see in 5 years how good or bad this really is.

    I haven't hated the Wings drafting in recent years. We've added Larkin, Mantha, Hronek. Svech, Bertuzzi, AA, VS, Cholo and Janmark in the last 5 years.

    There are no highlights available of him specifically. If you want to spend the time, here's a link to Allsvenskan game highlights: http://www.hockeyallsvenskan.se/play Almtuna = AIS, Lindström is a right-handed D #66. But you will only see glimpses of him.

    I can try to put together some clips from his J20 Elit games next week. The level of competition is not great though, somewhere between the main U20 and U18 leagues.

    This

    The more we talk about him without recent results the more we sound like Montreal Canadian fans who dredge out "24 cups so there"

    Sold! Now, can we get Lidstrom to scout Europe heavily for us as well? If Lidstrom AND Hakan sign off on a defenseman, I will firmly believe in their potential.

    Would he play 12 minutes a night for Detroit? Maybe 3ish on the PP and then 8 or so ES?

    Somewhat reminds me of the hronek pick to a lesser extent to where you either don't know anything about him or you are really high on him.
    Lidstrom and hakan both picking him makes me like the pick

    Where has it been reported that Lids liked this guy? All I see is the tweet above where he doesn't say much.

    Tyler Wright said other teams told them after the fact that they were going to take him in the second round.

    Hearing things like this and the Vancouver stuff makes me feel better about the pick. Doesn't help me from feeling underwhelmeded being content with 2 of our picks
