I still feel a Conolloy for Schneider deal to be the best possible solution as neither team wants to move a primary core piece or any D-men (save ballard for the nucks). But I don't see it happening because a) BC is gonna be a stud and SFY knows it, b) he's SFY's first draft pick and most GMs tend to be pretty attached to those, and c) Tampa's depth is probably the weakest point of the organization and SFY/Boucher know that. Moving BC will only worsen that.

That being said, if Uncle Vinik starts putting pressure on SFY to make a move to continue being a contender (which would mean a goalie cause Rolies on the last legs and Garon is ****ing garbage), anything can happen. Hopefully SFY can score a big UFA dman this offseason, though those are looking pretty thin. Suter is the best bet...
Common misconception, actually - while you could say its his first pick, he didn't actually pick him and had a lot of questions about choosing BC. He kind of got out of the way of the scouting staff and let them pick him.

Namestnikov was SYs pick.
