Nothing to stress over? While I agree that draft picks are always a crap shoot, can you honestly say you would trade Derek Stepan for a couple months of Antropov this year? Because that's potentially what we gave up for 3 extra games at MSG last season. Stockpiling picks is one thing...managing assets is another. We were not 1 or 2 pieces away from going the distance and everyone had to know that...thus it was terrible asset management.
