As we have talked about recently, the Detroit Red Wings have been in dire need of a player who can score goals on a regular basis.

The Detroit Red Wings in the midst of a rebuild are searching for future pieces who can find the back of the net a lot more often than the team has seen in recent years.

The addition of Thomas Vanek has left some fans scratching their heads and questioning Ken Holland once again.  Vanek didn’t fetch Vancouver much in return from Columbus last season, but Detroit won’t be interested so much in a player as the return, the target will be a mid-round draft pick.

Detroit had a cabinet full of draft choices this past summer, and did what looks like a great job drafting future talent.  If Ken Holland can stock up once again on draft selections, it will at least be a positive for the franchise.  Positive and Holland in the same sentence isn’t a regular occurrence in the last ten years.

Detroit over the next two seasons need to move on from some older players, let some young players develop and continue to acquire draft picks in anyway possible.

The young faces will be a welcoming site to fans of the Detroit Red Wings.  We expect the Red Wings to have a high draft choice next summer and likely the following summer.  A real chance to extend the walls of the rebuilding process on top of the franchise’s foundation being Dylan Larkin, Anthony Mantha, and Filip Zadina.

While we are waiting for the rebuild actually to set sail, let’s look at the potential 30 goal scorers of the future.
