I am going back directly to the Eminger trade for the 1st rd pick, that set in motion everything else. Of course it is all speculation, but if no moves were made and they did pick Carlson with that pick that is a pretty stalwart set of fwds. And again, this is all hypothetical because moves were made, but the one move that set in motion all others was that foolish trade for Eminger because he had a good series against the Flyers in the playoffs.
