So our drafting strategy should be "best player avaible" rated by the general concensis of the scouts so that their trading value is higher when we are negotiating trades.

We need to be more aggressive at the drafting table and make trades to move up the draft to get our core players. Once we have our young core players than we can work on depth and supporting players. We are currently missing a core center player. So we need to lock that down.

I Agree with you that having young guys and a good group of vets will build a good contender. But hanging on to our current vets at the expense of not getting a top young center core will hurt us from being a top contender. We are not a top conterder right now. Our vets Gomez, Gionta will be 33-34 in 3 for 4 years.Will they be able to perform in 3 for 4 years?
Except for minor stars like Mike Bossy 16th and Bryan Trottier 19th and literally a couple every year like that looking at defence for sure and goalies.
