Red Wings finish 27th overall

The Detroit Red Wings’ 2017-18 campaign concluded with a 4-3 OT loss to the New York Islanders on Saturday night, giving the Red Wings a 30-39-and-13 record for 73 points registered over the course of 82 games played. That’s good for 27th place in the NHL. As it stands today, the Red Wings would pick 5th overall in the 1st round, barring the results of the NHL’s draft lottery on April 28th:

  1. In retrospect, the B. Smith trade looks better all the time. The Ottawa pick turns out to be #33 overall. These first four picks (?, 27, 33, 36) will hopefully start the rebuild. Maybe they can get another first rounder for AA.

    1. Yep. It’s pretty awesome how KH bluffed the Rangers into thinking Smith was worth a lot by saying he was considering resigning Smith. Brilliant move!

      1. Also pretty awesome how we drafted Kindl, SMith, Sproul, and Ouellet with 1st and 2nd round picks and developed them into garbage…

        But I’m sure Cholowski, Hronek and Saarijarvi will turn out much, much better.
