Put yourself in Atlanta's shoes.

Do you want DZ after an abysmal sophomore season? Sure, he's worth a shot. He's young. But for an improving young forward? Ask yourself: Does ATL need d-men? Offensive d-men? Might not be a glaring need. Do they need picks? Sure. But I don't think Atlanta is "rebuilding" as much as trying to make a playoff run and work young as they have. Our 1st rd pick won't mean much as a regular middle-of-the-pack team. We usually have a 15th-20th pick.

I didn't necessarilly mean to value Dubinsky or Staal in the category of Anisimov or DZ, but it definitely will take a lot to grab a 19-year old forward who seems to have it all. Too much to be worth it. Draft your own talent.
