Hell manybe we drat 28th like Anaheim that year and end up with the next Cory Perry. You don't want a guy like Cory Perry???? Maybe it would be better to take 2 2nd rnd picks but only about half of them are working out and I personally would rather have one TOP pick than 2 that may or may not work out and in any event likey won't be as good as the ONE guy we could take in the 1st.
Or, if we trade down into the second, we could end up with a Patrice Bergeron, Shea Webber, Patrick O'Sullivan, Matt Carle, David Backes, Kevin Kline, etc...... Our pick is going to be at the lower end of the first. If we trade down with a team who has multiple 2nds, the chances are we get a player who went later than they should have.
