The Detroit Red Wings season is coming to a close. After a season full of ups and downs, it’s hard to think that their focus is still on the few remaining games. I mean, it’s not exactly like they are competing for the Stanley Cup, so why bother. Which, if I’m correct, means that the Red Wings front office has more than likely began transitioning themselves into an off-season and NHL draft mindset.

As we have become familar with, the draft is one of the most important times of the year. Especially for a team in the same stage as the Red Wings.

When you go through these long periods of time of being the best team in hockey, with some of the best players of all time, you will inevitably go through a drought. That drought, although very hard to endure, generally comes out great at the end. That’s where we are currently at with the Red Wings rebuild.

The Red Wings have begun getting some of their young prospects up into the NHL, but they are still young and have a long way to go before we really get to see their full potential.

When I say that, I’m referring to superstar forward, Lucas Raymond, and superstar defenseman, Moritz Seider. Now, those are the big two names, but there are still others such as: Gustav Lindstrom, Joe Veleno, and Taro Hirose.

Now, given the fact that they missed the playoffs, they are going to need to make at least one more potential superstar pick. Could Isaac Howard be that pick?
