I almost think Boston *has* to keep that pick as an homage to the Phil Kessel trade. In addition, Seguin and Hall have confirmed that the only teams that have brought them in for one on one interviews have been Edmonton and Boston.... as if it were a foregone conclusion that those were the only two players at the table. Boston is enamored with one of the defenders in this draft and would like to package their own pick, 15th, with perhaps the 32nd in order to get back into the Top 8 picks depending upon how the draft goes from 3-7. That is the only concrete thing we've heard from Boston.
In this draft there are two top guns, four pop guns, and 10 or 11 pea shooters. The rest is anybody's guess. At 7th overall, the best we can hope for is that one of those pop guns falls to 7th so we don't have to draft the best pea shooter available.
This may be one of the harder drafts in recent memory to trade from the late single digits and the teens into the top 6 picks. As per usual Hurricanes standards, we landed 7th in a 6 man battle.
My only hope is that the wildcard comes into play, being Campbell, and throws the whole works down one peg. If he goes Top 6, we'll get a player we need. If not, we'll get a prospect.
