Praise for Edvinsson, Cossa amidst an article advising ‘dynasty league’ fantasy hockey players

While doling out advice for fantasy hockey “dynasty league” players, RotoWire’s Shawn Hutchinson handicaps his top 12 prospects in an article published for Yahoo Sports. Two of the top twelve consist of the Red Wings’ two 2021 first-round picks:

Simon Edvinsson, D, Red Wings: Edvinsson brings a well-rounded game on the blue line, although that could lead to a longer developmental path. The 18-year-old Swede had 12 points in 38 games across three leagues in his native Sweden last year — his offense is not NHL ready, but he’s got size (6-foot-4) and skating skills in spades. He’s still going to need multiple years to make the jump, but the Red Wings should be able to make room for him when he’s ready.

Sebastian Cossa, Red Wings: Taken 15th overall in the NHL draft, Cossa clearly has the skill to be a factor in the NHL within three years. He’s a big goalie, but he also has good movement in the crease. Whether he takes the reins as a true No. 1 goalie or starts in a tandem situation, Cossa will likely establish himself as an effective NHL netminder in the not-too-distant future.

Continued; in what little I’ve seen of Edvinsson, his skating is absolutely effortless, which serves as a fine foundation for his excellent skill set; as for Cossa, he’s both blessed and cursed by his immense 6’6″ size, meaning that he does a fantastic job of covering net, but has some holes in his technique that still need to be addressed.

  1. I am sure I would be speechless if I knew how time and work StevieY has. Probably a big part of his success.

    Lucky he is still relatively young.

    Others like Draper are probably in the same category
