there is no way we'll have the 1st pick unless there is a partial season and we finish at the bottom and win the lottery (of course even if we finish last we'd probably lose the lottery)...so the part about having the #1 pick and getting crosby is pure fantasy and dreaming...

second the idea that some team is going to trade the 2nd overall pick and a potential franchise player for a goalie who hasn't played in a year and 1/2 (after being mishandled the 2 years before that) and some mid-level prospects is just plain silly...there aren't enough drugs in the world to convince another gm to make a trade like that...ESPECIALLY when you factor in that most of the teams in contention for that pick already have a good young goalie

a far more realistic possibility would be for us to us the added depth and go friggin nuts with a trade offer for the #1 pick and then add that to our own 1st to have 2 high 1st...but we aren't getting that #1 for blackburn and a few nobodies...the expression 'trading the farm' would apply here
