I imagine, as per SH usual, we will hold the pick and do one of two things:

1. Target a mid-late 20 player, trade back, draft our guy. Adding a 2/3 rd pick with a good target player (my bet is a C/D/W/G in that order) is a good positive. This draft doesn't have as much highlight talent depth as previous ones, but something I'm noticing is a serious depth between the 20-40 mark, all of them capable of being 15-20 players instead. So having 3 picks in the first 40-50 could be a great opportunity to continue to provide depth.

2. Simply hold the pick and draft a player in that spot. My bet is we get the 13 spot.

Unless we acquire an additional first round at the draft by moving players in sign and trades like Hejda and Stralman, or just moving another contracted player, I don't see SH trading it. He likes the depth we have currently with Johansen, Brassard, Vermette, and we all know he's more apt to be patient and strike when it benefits us (even if it's a small splash) rather than make a big splash that could have high risk written all over it.
