What are the Chances the Red Wings Land Shane Wright?

So, I’d say there is a 99.9% chance of Shane Wright going to whoever has the first overall pick in this years NHL entry draft. So, in order for the Red Wings to get Shane Wright, they’d need to have the first pick. That much is pretty easy to understand.

So, with that being said, what are the chances of Shane Wright actually landing with the Red Wings? Well, most of the time I’d just say something like “Not great” or “Unlikely”- but this time I can actually give you guys a percentage.

When looking at, you can actually see a visual of where each teams stands for a certain pick. But, in case you just want to read about it- here is the odds for the first overall pick:

Odds for the First Overall Pick

Arizona Coyotes: 25.7%

Montreal Canadiens: 12.1%

Seattle Kraken: 10.9%

Philadelphia Flyers: 9.7%

New Jersey Devils: 8.5%

Chicago Blackhawks: 7.6%

Ottawa Senators: 6.7%

Buffalo Sabres: 5.8%

Detroit Red Wings: 5.4%

San Jose Sharks: 4.5%

Anaheim Ducks: 3.1%

So, it’s clear that the odds are not really in the Red Wings favor, but it is in fact possible and if they happen to get the pick, then the question that needs to be asked is where do you go from there?
