Better to TRADE down than pick early.

But from a team's perspective, at least you got your guy.
I can think of at least one GM who would take Hull third or fourth. And you can definitely justify a top five pick on Hull. Wouldn't be my guy for No. 5, but a case could be made.

It is only one spot higher than where Hull went in the last draft. And Hull is the clear-cut No. 1 LW of all-time. It might be the position with the biggest difference between No. 1 and No. 2.

I'm not surprised that Hull would go in the top 5. It's just that I expected E-Speak to pick someone else.
