we'd have to offer above $5 million. isn't that four (FOUR!!!!!) first round draft picks in comp.? That's if we were serious about grabbing him.

Four first round draft picks. so...Four first round draft picks vs. Burns, a 1st, and Scandella.

Consider that four years from now we still won't have a first round draft pick and we'll probably need one as quite a few contracts will be up or close to done. Including Ryan's.

edit: wait a minute...i think the numbers may have changed on me. now i'm thinking more along the lines of two firsts, a second, and a third?
still, considering those players we would have drafted would hopefully be coming into NHL readiness by the time our major guys contracts are finishing, it just seems like a shortsighted strategy. Would be different if we had a bunch of (good) players signed for another 5 years each at the moment.
