Antro contributed down the stretch, and I agree that he would improve this year's team. A second-rounder is nothing to stress over. Most first-rounders don't even become players on the top two lines in the NHL, let alone second rounders. The organization is relatively deep and we don't need to stockpile picks like in 2005.
