If the answer to this is no, then the answer to this has to be no. Our first rounders since Gordie Clark took over have, more often than not, been stellar picks.
It works both ways.
Would you give up Jessiman just to get rid of Redden?
Would you give up Montoya just to get rid of Drury?
draft picks are not SURE things.
edit:Yeah, our drafting has improved. And in my argument (post 11) I mentioned our 1st round would probally end up a player around the caliber of AA (which is good). BUT, we still don't know if AA will be that 1st line guy or a fringe 1st liner, 2nd line guy. And even then... We could still buy a top line guy+replace Redden and still be in a better situation than having Redden+1st rounder.
