I haven't done any "scouting" on those prospects, but I can guarantee that atleast one of the guys will go wrong (and likely more). It just never turns out that good.

Regarding getting an extra 2nd round pick... Of the 11th drafts we've had, only 2 drafts have resulted in a getting an NHL player in the 2nd round: 2003- Weber, 1998- Hall. If Poile trades down for picks, he better be damn confident in the players he picks up.

RE: Hartnell
I didn't realize he hit 30 this year. Thankfully for him, he's playing with some of the top offensive players in the league, which is where he's at his best (as a complementary player). I will have to update my statement: We've never drafted anyone who has scored more than 30 goals.
