Maybe during this draft we should try to move up a few spots to get our "homerun" pick. Maybe trade our 25th pick and a mid level prospect (white, carle, grabovski etc) to move up a few spots. I think kyle beech would be ideal but he'll be probally gone by then.
We'd probably have to go up to Vancouver's spot (my guess is they can't turn down a potential franchise center with their limited offensive prospect pool) and that would cost so much to get there.
I'd go for later picks with big risk like Petrov (Antropov-like winger), Grachev (top line potential, big question marks) or Joe Colborne (not sold on this guy). Three guys who could develop into big-time players, but who could also never play in the NHL or just be 3rd liners.
Anyways, we need to start thinking about guys with high ceilings because I don't know how much guys will be going from the AHL to the NHL in future years, because we have loads of young guys on the team.
