The draft is SO DEEP, it feels wrong to trade our 1st away when it's Shero's all you can eat buffet in terms of a loaded D 1st round. It would feel criminal to trade it away, but for another cup how can you not? aslong as it's not for an aging vet....
I always hate trading picks, but the Pens are in win every year mode. If you can get a guy who helps make your team in general or Sid/Geno specifically better and fits your 2-3 year payroll, then I have no problem moving the #1 and losing a guy you won't see in 3 years anyway.

Frankly, it's why Shero is drafting defensemen, so he can keep doing Whitney and Gogo style trades. I suspect Martin is up next on that one . . .
