Red Wings Central draft preview

Because I'm no expert on prospects and the immediate draft needs of the Wings' minors system, I'm deferring the draft preview to Red Wings Central. All I'll say is maybe they should think about bolstering their defensive depth because it's pretty weak beyond the main roster. Based on what Matt Wuest says, that could be what they'll do:
It’s just the fourth time in the past 10 years that the Red Wings have held their first-round pick. Each time, the Red Wings have looked to the blue line — selecting defensemen Jakub Kindl (19th in 2005), Niklas Kronwall (29th in 2000) and Jiri Fischer (25th in 1998).
OLN is broadcasting the draft tomorrow beginning at 6:00 ET. Be sure to stop by to catch James Mirtle's special feature live-blog of the event. Update (24. Jun, 11:31 AM): Here's a more direct link to the live-blog, which James reports will start in the hours before the draft begins. -- Matt We'll have the Wings' picks posted along with any information we can find on them, of course. Also, my Dad is out of the hospital. The scare was that he had had a stroke on Sunday but it turns out he just had a TIA (transient ischemic attack), which amounts to a mini-stroke. He's doing a lot better but will have to undergo therapy and hopefully he'll be able to recover fully. It's been a rollercoaster of a week, to be sure.
