We haven't used a 1st round pick on a guy with legitimate 1st line offensive potential in over a half decade. Not since the Lecavalier draft to be specific. Other forwards we have taken have either been projects (Alexeev) or two-way players it was freely admitted would probably top out as second liners (Svitov).

Now's the time to go for some skill. Nothing to lose when you're sitting at pick 30 (::knock on wood: and everything to gain.
