As crazy as it sounds, I think Poile might try to be proactive. It seems to me that with the new ownership, the continued need to drive interest, and the assets available that ownership would green light or even encourage a big splash.

I'll predict our two first rounders and Klien (or Koistenen) will be traded to get the Preds to the 3-6 range to secure Filatov.

Failing that, I think our order of preference at #9 (with percentages of player being available) are:

Filatov (less than 1%)
Boedker (10%)
Wilson (30%)
Meyers (30%)
Hodgson (30%)
Beach (90%)

I'd be thrilled with the first two, very happy with the next two and disappointed with the last two. Barring trade, I think I'll be disappointed as the Preds pick Hodgson.
