The Detroit Red Wings hold the 15th selection in the 2014 NHL Draft and with that positioning, they have some flexibility as far as moving up or moving down goes.

It has been some years since the Red Wings have held a top-10 pick, 1991 being the last time that such an event happened, when Detroit took Martin Lapointe at 10th overall.

The Red Wings need to take a hard look at trading up in the first round this season. There is some top-end talent among the first 10 picks instead of just the usual first two or three selections.

More importantly, there are some teams in the top 10 who could afford to slide down to the 15th spot without seriously damaging the quality of player that they would take.

Here are four players that the Detroit Red Wings should consider trading up for in the 2014 NHL Draft.

Note: These players will be "available" in this slideshow based on the Red Wings trading with the team that would potentially take the player at the spot the other team is currently picking.
