So Wright and Henderson are fine for Holland.
But Merkosky, Finley, Dickson aren't for either organization (DET or EDM).
Really excited for Draper to have this role. I also see it as an important step to him one day running his own show. I believe in him as a bright future executive. Glad to see Yzerman also believes.
Surprised the Athletic duo are not reporting the Wings promotion news that Ansar is already.
Draper is a good hire I think, but I'm not celebrating either. I've always liked his comments on players and he comes across as intelligent and knowledgeable. I always preferred the things he has to say compared to Wright. I think he values better qualities than Wright. Still he has no track record to point to so until he's run a draft or two we really won't know. Furthermore I would have also liked Stevie bringing in a new voice from outside the organization. From his days as a player you know there's no one more dedicated than Drapes
In other news, the Edmonton forum already has a fire Ken Holland poll going.
he probably still will in some form
I don't know exactly how Finley's role compared to Wright's but chief amateur scout still sounds like a fairly important position
Horcoff-Cleary (player development)
Funny how this goes.
Even in executive roles, Cleary can't get past the third line.
Is Fischer still doing the undrafted Euro scouting thing still? Seemed like there for awhile they were really grooming him to have a bigger front office role.
They mentioned him when we signed the guy from Finland. I was curious if he would follow Holland. It seems like to date Yzerman has kept most of the guys I really wanted him to along with bringing back Verbeek which is huge. I do wish Martin followed Holland but I sort of knew he was staying on... It does seem this is heading in a direction I like.
But he was great on the 1st line.
Never forget the first game when I was at the Joe.
Holmström injured, Cleary is put with Zats+D and scores 2 goals. Against the Avs.
Yzerman wanted Ryan Martin also to Tampa, but refused to go. I think he values him well.
Or maybe they didn't want to go to Edmonton.
So happy. Have been pretty vocal on here that I was really hoping Wright would be given the boot. His track record has been shit overall.
Looks like Henderson chose the Oilers over staying with the Wings.
Tyler Wright out as Red Wings amateur scouting director
I’m fine with this.
This guy's tenure will be largely remembered for how well the Rasmussen pick turns out.
The Larkin pick...?
Every time I saw Wright talk, his main focus would be personality and how big they are, not in my opinion the top priorities a player should have. Sole reason Rasmussen was picked.
I've been saying for a few years now that we should get some new blood in the scouting department. I'm all for it.
Not a top 10 pick.
Of course he's made dozens and dozens of picks, but I think the Ras one is really the embodiment of his draft philosophy and whether he pans out as top 10 worthy is a metric we'll note.
