    It's fun reading the comments from last night into this morning after Yzermans pick 6th overall. Fans appear to be skeptically positive because it's Yzerman. If Ken Holland was still their GM, the fans would have lost their $hit with that pick LOL.

    I hope Stevie hits it out of the park but man, one has to wonder where that kid was valued by other teams. I've read other teams had him in their top 10, but that's just what I've read. Who really knows.

    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting
    Goalie points W=2pt L=-1pt SHO=2pt

    Skeptically optimistic is a good way to put it haha

    I wasn't as down on Holland as others in recent years but either way I'd like to think I'd have a similar approach if he were still around. After all...my prospect knowledge comes mostly from reading so what do I know.

    I'd also like to think they didn't think they could move down and still get him otherwise they would have. Detroit loves moving down!

    It'll be interesting to see because they left some potential studs on the board.

    Still a lot of quality that slipped out of the 1st round.

    Yzerman did try to move down, there just wasn't a deal to be had, apparently.

    I'd be willing to bet a few GMs tried to move.

    The evidence (only one trade happening) shows there wasn't much interest in moving up. In fact Arizona likely overpaid for their trade-up.

    After the 2019/20 season Detroit will have Green, Ericsson and Daley off the books.

    If they could just do a real tank this year they could be primed for a comeback in 2020/21. They need that stud pick to bring it all together.
