No guarantees picking #1 overall, remember Patrick Stefan and Brian Lawton.
But, better to pick #1 that middle of the pack. I am glad we weren't in that group, picking 5 to 10. We have some good young talent in Hall, Eberle and Pajaarvi. Still a little too small, we have a lot of small skilled guys. Omark and Cogliano, and maybe Nugent-Hopkins after the draft. Some trade bait maybe. I am hoping we pick Nugent-Hopkins, he won't be in the NHL next year from what I understand.
I hope the injury bug stays away next year. We've had a couple of rough years. Losing Ryan Whitney is what really killed us this year, he was our #1 defenceman.
Next year! Who knows?
How about your Wings?
