Val Bure isn't the greatest player, so if the pick is a 2nd, then the return isn't that bad for Florida. What makes this trade ridiculous, however, is the published comment from Rick Dudley earlier in the day that said he'd trade Bure if he could get "assets that would make them a Stanley Cup contender". Since nobody in their right mind will give "Stanley Cup" assets for a guy like Bure (and no, a single 2nd rounder doesn't cut it), making that comment and then dealing him for a draft pick only makes you look stupid. Just shut your mouth and make the deal.
