Red Wings to change draft strategy
More size? I'm down with that.

Wings search for draft gems | The Detroit News | detroitnews.com
They'll find one somewhere in the draft. It might not be a player of Henrik Zetterberg or Pavel Datsyuk-like proportions, but they'll find some serviceable players for the future.

Trade talks expected to heat up at entry draft, but Red Wings' main priority is free agency | MLive.com
Sure it might not happen, but you never know, Kenny might pull a rabbit out of his hat.

Armchair GM: Draft Day Trading Block - Anaheim Calling
The Ducks should keep Bobby Ryan and trade Corey Perry instead because Corey Perry is a douche.

Bob McKenzie: Staal turns down huge offer, doesn't plan on re-signing right now | June2012
Apparently he turned down a 10-year, $60M deal. Interesting. Awhile back JJ proposed a trade to me of that would send Valtteri Filppula + Jakub Kindl + 2nd-rounder + 4th-rounder for Jordan Staal + Paul Martin + 6th rounder. Would I make that trade? Probably. Will that trade happen. Probably not. But Jordan Staal is definitely a guy I'd take on my team.

Let's Go Red Wings.
