We have guys like Gill Campoli Moen AK with expriring contracts that we can move, plus we already have 7-8 young guys playing regular minutes(Price Emelin Diaz Weber Eller Pacioretty Subban DD) on most nights. You make it sound like we are the Calgary Flames.
I'm not sure how people can seriously think we will still have that pick when the draft comes. That's in 2 years. Gauthier or any other for that matter will have plenty of time to deal it. I hope they don't. But let's talk about that pick as an asset. Nothing more. It is not bad, but the past tells us that it doesn't necessarily mean a prospect we will be able to pick in a deep draft....
