- Trading first round picks and young players for older d-man is a risk.

- Stoll started the year 17 points in his first 20 games. Since then he has 17 points in 39 games. And that is with spending a good chunk of the the time on the #1 PP unit. Sorry, a good 3rd line center. Not a good second line center, it is a hole that hopefully Schenn fills.
And Carolina has missed the playoffs 3 of the 4 years since that Cup win.

Heres go the Stoll crap again.

So are you trying to suggest that if the draft was taken again he would go higher??? He actually would have gone lower.IMO. So Again I ask why is he untouchable? How many times do I have to ask until you answer... I don't hate the guy... I just want someone else to tell me why..
And look at the depth charts of the teams they play on as well. NYI and ATL didnt really have that much depth at the F position, TB didnt have that much depth at the D position and Colorado had a bad season which led to that pick. What do the Kings have? Depth at Center.
