Building a world-class organization such as the Detroit Red Wings is a never-ending job. While the team closes in on the start of training camp for the upcoming season, many in the organization are looking several years ahead in order to maintain the team’s success for years to come.
They have long had one of the better international scouting departments in the league and are well known for finding steals late in the draft. They are also known for allowing players to remain in the minors for a long time in order to be fully ready. While it is sometimes frustrating, it is hard to argue with the results over the past 20 seasons.
Their talent pool throughout their organization is one of the best in the league. This was evident this past season when the Grand Rapids Griffins won the Calder Cup. With so many talented players, who are the best? Who are the Red Wings of the future?
Here are their best prospects at each position.
