would we trade Theo and Perez to pick up a guy like Ovechkin?? If we've tried to break the BIG trade in the past few years (from the rumors about Kovalchuk and Zherdev), are we going to continue that line of work now that we pick much later in the 1st round?

Personally, i think we'd go for that if it were an option. Garon is a very solid goaltending option, and he's significantly cheaper than Theo... if we don't think that we'll win it in the next 2-3years, picking up a superstar prospect might be a better option for the development of the team longterm... how would that affect the confidence in our defensive corps (ie lacking theo to back them up).

If it's there and we can get one of the top picks, we'll do it.
