Quick Hits: The October Draft Edition

In Red Wings Land

Which of Detroit Red Wings’ draft misses hurt rebuild more: Quinn Hughes or Brock Boeser? - Detroit Free Press

We’d all look like geniuses drafting in hindsight. If 2018 were redone, Hughes would probably be a top-three pick (the Wings weren’t going to take him even if Zadina had not been available — they had their sights on defenseman Evan Bouchard). The better Zadina plays, the less passing on Hughes will ding the Wings. The fact Boeser has demonstrated he’s a top-six forward and Svechnikov has yet to show he belongs in the NHL is going to be harder to forget.

Good post, Helene.
