How about this, instead of trading up Toronto's pick this year, we trade it for a first rounder next year. Let's say a team that picked earlier sees a player they almost took drop to 24/25, they might be willing to give up their pick next year to make that pick this year. If we trade with the right team, you'd have to assume we would have a first rounder next year in the 5-15 range along with our own first rounder. It's perhaps the easiest way to move up in a draft. You don't lost any assests, while you move up 10-15 spots depending on the team you trade with.
I like that idea, it could increase the chances for Crosby if the team we trade for has a poor record next season, assuming there is a next season.
