Do you believe we will sign one or two UFA's wich could make such a deal a possibility? Say like signing Brooks Orpik for example and dealing Ryan O'Byrne to a team who needs size and speed on Defense?
Or will Gainey just draft his 5 players, have some St-Hubert chicken and coffee afterwards and go home quietly?
I'm not sure what Gainey is going to do, but with a team already deep in prospects and youth some trades maybe the wy to go to acquire the missing pieces.
Having stayed at the same hotel in Toronto (NHL Combine was at the Airport Marriott) and mingling with a lot of NHL Brass from people like Cam Neely, Garth Snow, Mike Gillis, Steve Tamballeni and many more it seems that this is going to be a draft with a lot of movement taking places from picks and players...I over heard the Canucks saying that they would trade every pick in this strong draft it meant them getting the missing pieces they need ASAP to put them over the edge.
There maybe some significant deals leading to the draft or at the draft.
