Again just my opinion as I respect yours. BPA available would be Duchene after JT and Hedman.
I understand that it's fun to propose these deals. I was just stating we may want a guy or two that have been there(like a Williams, etc). Dean is pretty much out of time in terms of the re-build, so aquiring a guy that may or may not be ready in two to three years is pointless if he's no longer with us by then. That's when I made my point about trading the pick to aquire someone established.
The value in your proposed deal seems fair, though.
