Should the Detroit Red Wings take Jamie Drysdale at four?

As mentioned before, the prediction rankings, the Red Wings could be slated to take Canadian born defenseman, Jamie Drysdale. The talent level is phenomenal; he has a top pairing valuation, moves the puck well, and plays the game offensively.

If Drysdale is genuinely considered to be the best player available over the forwards in Yzerman’s eyes, then take him. Personally, I would not be upset to see them take Drysdale, but I would prefer they select a forward.

The forward talent level is going to be high, and any forward selected from pick one to pick seven is going to be good. The Red Wings’ future defense core seems like it will develop pretty nicely, and these are not the only Red Wings prospects just some of the “better” or more “seasoned” ones.

It sure seems that with the plethora of picks the Red Wings have in this years 2020 NHL Entry Draft, they could add a defenseman or two later in the draft to aid their future defense core.

Over the course of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, the Red Wings will make ten picks over seven rounds.

They already possess an excellent nucleus; it will just depend on how things go for the future development of these players.

Frankly, whoever the Red Wings pick, whether it is Drysdale, Cole Perfetti, Lucas Raymond, or Marco Rossi, or whoever Yzerman surprises everyone with, it will be a good talent. The talent will not be Lafrenière, but it will be someone to add to an organization that is trying to rebuild.
