Who is being knocked out of that top 7? Since Hall and Seguin are realistically out of reach, rather than burning our 2nd rounders, wouldn't one of the 3 defensemen or Connolly/Niederreiter be just as solid a pick for the Canes at #7?
I think most people have it more of a five man race, and the Canes will be picking from the leftovers of Connoly, Nino, Johansen and Granlund.
I can't think of a conceivable trade we could make to get one of the top two picks, and IMO none of the big 3 d-men are THAT much better to make it worthwhile trading up. Knowing our luck with drafting lottery pick defense-men, we would pick the one guy out of three that ends up getting ten concussions in juniors or something.
