In Red Wings Land
At No. 1 is Moritz Seider, who was 25th on last year’s list. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound German blueliner has elevated his play to the next level with his size, physicality, puckhandling and offensive skill. Drafted sixth overall in 2019, he has the makings of a future No. 1 defenceman.
Red Wings prospect Lucas Raymond, taken fourth overall in last October’s draft, is No. 3 on our list. The winger, whose style of play is similar to Toronto Maple Leafs star Mitch Marner, has six goals and 18 points in 34 games with Frolunda in the SHL this season.
This got mentioned in yesterday’s QH, but I want to make sure everybody saw it. Jonatan Berggren is also at #53 on this list.
Around the NHL
Listen. Crosby is better then me I never said he wasn’t. He’s obviously one of the best ever. It was @ovi8 vs Sid. None of you played in the NHL and know how hard it is to score goals in the NHL. 724 is insane. Sid just whined way too much and Ovi just shut up and played hard. pic.twitter.com/rI2aSriYvY— Brandon Dubinsky (@BDubi17) April 2, 2021
It’s funny because this is a fantastic fan argument that I love to see from just about anybody. Then I see it from a former NHL player with a big stupid mouth known for saying dumb things and all of a sudden I learn I don’t love to see it from a specific subset of people.
Dubinsky’s got a chip. I get that. It’s kind of sad to see him expressing it like this.
