    Building a pretty good brain trust here, lots of new voices and some shifting in roles. I like the way the group is shaping up.

    I am just glad Stevie Y kept Jiri Fischer. He scouted and recruited free agents Kaski, Hirose and Kuffner last year and all 3 players have shown very good potential in early reviews this year as well as late last season when 2 of them played in the NHL already.

    None of those guys cost us draft picks and would be great additions to the Redwings if they all pan out. They help make up for the years when the Redwings didn't draft very well and had no replacements for players leaving. Their next contract as restricted free agents shouldn't be too onerous either since they have had only 1 year of NHL experience if any or all of them make the team this year.

    Organizational depth is very important in helping an NHL team remain competitive year in and year out, and savvy inexpensive free agent additions along with good draft picks are very important components in making the Redwings a fixture again in the playoffs long term.

    I am not sure it is such a good idea though to always retain players to management positions who have ties to the organization as players(it didn't work for Edmonton or the New York Rangers, etc.), as Steve has shown an inclination to do(Fischer, Draper, Maltby, Mark Howe, and now Kronner), but perhaps it will work for the Redwings.

    Interesting that Naurato still works with the Hughes brothers even in his consulting role. I wonder if previous clients were grandfathered into his consulting gig with the Wings... I was just surprised to hear Jack Hughes say he is working with him.

    Does Nosek belong on the list too even though he wasn't with the Wings for that long?

    It's great that the organization employed him and it seems like he's doing good work.
