Absolutely!

I personally think you and others are overstating the wealth of talent that will be on the market by virtue of the pending CBA. Of course, if there is a cap, that changes everything. But regardless if there is no cap or a $10 cap , top dmen are going to remain in very high demand.

Which of the teams with a high pick would be willing to give it up for Hamrlik? I can't see even one.
