With the pure suckage coming out of Edm, NYI, and NJD, it's going to be very tough for either Toronto or Calgary to get a lottery pick.

Toronto's pick just isn't as valuable as many Bruins fans are making it out to be. It's not going to be Seguin part 2.

IMO it will take both that Toronto pick and a prospect like Coburne to make an Iggy deal happen. Boston's pick will probably be in the 25-30 range. Players drafted in this range usually have less than a 50% chance of ever becomming NHL players of any capacity, let alone potential first liners. This year is expected to be a very shallow draft. Boston's pick is worth very little IMO.
