In Red Wings Land

Moritz Seider shocked Detroit Red Wings drafted him 6th in 2019 NHL draft | Freep

Shocked by the pick by Steve Yzerman and the Red Wings?

So are we... but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad. Seems like Moritz Seider has some solid upside. Plus, apparently his nickname in Mannheim is The Diamond. Tough to be upset about the pick after learning that.

Seems like Seider might have a pretty good personality too.

Loving this pick more and more.

2019 NHL draft: Pick-by-pick analysis | ESPN

Team fit: The Red Wings do not have a ton of depth among defensemen in their system, but this was a shocker of a pick in Steve Yzerman’s first draft. The value among the forwards still on the board is significant. You’d have to think the Red Wings bring him to North America immediately and allow him to develop in their own system in the AHL. -- Peters

Where Seider is most likely to play in 2019-20: AHL

I know our own Peter agrees that the Wings passed on some significant forward talent.
