BTW, trading Halak never took balls, they had to do it.
They didn't have to trade Halak they could have traded Price and the media and fans would have been happier(at that time).
They moved up to draft Tinordi last year. When is the last time a team moved up from past 16 to the top 3-5 in the draft? Vancouver grabbing the Sedins is the last time I can recall and that was like 10-12 years ago. It would be harder to do now because the cap makes picks more valuable than they were pre cap...just look at how few 1st rounders get traded at the deadline compared to 8-10 years ago.
