At this point, Voracek & Gagner would definitely be considered better, with Alzner, Turris, Hickey having the potential to be.

The 7th overall + Kaberle is way too much for the 2nd. The talent dropoff between 2 and 7 isn't nearly as big as the fans on this board play it out to be. Maybe we include one of the 2nd rounders; but thats about it.
Dream on.

The 7th overall and Kaberle wouldn't begin to get you the second. Tampa has already made that clear. Their own explictly said he would insist on Schenn or no deal.

And, the falloff in talent between Cowen and Hedman/Tavares is quite substantial.

Man, do I ever miss Oleg Kvasha. If Oleg was here, everything would be OK.
