The Next Wave NHL
DETROIT RED WINGS
SUMMARY
The Wings have some talent contributing in the NHL like Mantha, but a decent crop coming behind him. While their may not be a ton of top end depth, there's a bunch of potential defensemen who could play top 4 roles. In net they have a trio of interesting specs in Petruzzelli, van Pottleberghe, and Machovsky.

UP
Filip Hronek had a tremendous first year in North America and jumped up the rankings, he looks like a steal in second round now. If Hronek has another strong year and progresses even more, we may be looking at a top pairing dman in the near future.

DOWN
No prospect dropped of any significance, note that Dennis Cholowski was not highly rated by the model to start the year, and his performance did nothing to change that.

WHO TO WATCH
Martin Frk, he's seemingly on his last chance to stick at the NHL level, and is being given an offensive role he can thrive in. Whether he takes advantage of this will determine if he's got an NHL carrer in front of him.

TEAM RANK - 15th
