We aren't Toronto. That's likely going to be a top 5 pick, which should be a fantastic player in this draft. We'd definitely have to add if you take that pick out, but it's too valuable to give up right now.

With that said we're not trading an elite goaltender (they're hard to get, plus he's a fan favourite). He's untouchable. He would require a HUUUUGE overpayment and we still wouldn't trade him since that position is the most important one. You don't trade top 3 goalies in the league like that. That's why u rarely see elite goalies getting moved . Especially when they're in their prime.

NHL 12 now, later bro .
Fully agreed. I'd trade that pick for 2, maybe 3 goalies in this league. Rinne, Lundqvist, and maybe Rask.

Outside of their top pick, they have been drafting defense with their high picks. At the top of the draft you have to take BPA - if you go need, you could miss out on a superstar.
