Trevor, I hate to break it to you, but a cup contender doesn't have room for a washed up guy who is always hurt.  The Wings managed to trade Kindl back in the day but I can't imagine anyone will give up anything of value for Daley's corpse.

i've informed my employer that i want a $1 million raise.

1. Alexis Lafreniere, LW, Rimouski Oceanic (QMJHL)

Height: 6-foot-1 | Weight: 196

The most NHL-ready player in the draft, Lafreniere has a chance to be one of the better wings of the past few years. He plays a complete game and has few if any weaknesses in his game. With his ability to create separation with his hands, vision to spot plays on the ice and frame to challenge opposing defenders with or without the puck, Lafreniere is a handful. On top of that, he has put up monster production in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, he posted an MVP performance at the World Juniors, and he seems to get better as the year progresses, putting him in the driver's seat to go wire-to-wire as the No. 1 prospect.

Special NHL Prospect

  1. Alexis Lafrenière, LW, Rimouski-QMJHL

Oct. 11, 2001 | 6-foot-1 | 192 pounds

Previous ranking: No. 1

Lafrenière has passed nearly every test thrown at him. He’s dominated the QMJHL for years. He was the MVP of the world juniors and has been great at other international events over the years. He has off days where he’ll put up 2-3 points in the Q. He’s a player with elite skill and elite offensive IQ. He can dazzle on any given shift with his playmaking and ability to beat players 1-on-1. Lafrenière is also a highly competitive player who plays well in the hard areas of the ice, is solid defensively and plays physical. His skating isn’t as elite as the rest of his tools, but he has shown enough progress in that area to where he has no noticeable weakness in his game now. He’s a projected star-caliber forward in the NHL and a cornerstone piece for the team that drafts him.


Special/Elite Bubble

  1. Quinton Byfield, C, Sudbury-OHL

Aug. 19, 2002 | 6-foot-4 | 214 pounds

Previous ranking: No. 2

Byfield has been as good as you could have hoped for as a 17-year-old in the OHL. He has the best pure toolkit in the draft. He’s 6-foot-4, he’s a very good skater and his hands are right up there with the best in the draft. He can break a shift open with his ability to power past or dangle through defenders. I’ve questioned Byfield’s playmaking in the past, but this season he’s shown a high level of vision. He has the ability to use his power and skill both to create for himself and to make difficult plays to set up his teammates. When the pace increased at the higher levels at the international stage, he faded a bit, but I do think he is very much in the first overall conversation because he has the potential to become an impact No. 1 center in the NHL.

From the Athletic....cue the Biggs post on us getting the #4 pick :)

Haven't watched but just saw Larkin picked up a 3rd period assist on Fabbri's goal. So guess he's OK.

watched the 2nd, couldn't face the third. They are just so easy to forecheck. It's like they are skating on molasses and the Rangers on real ice. Then they give you 5 great minutes sort of out of nowhere - then give up 2 horrible goals. They were bad last year, but this is worse.
