If WPG is drafting in the 7-8 range, and Galyenchuk, Forsberg, Yakupov, Grigorenko, Faksa are all off the board, I look to trade down. There is a glut of D there, and I think that WPG should be targeting a forward, not to mention that the D are all very close. I would trade down to 11-13 range, pick up an extra 2nd and take Girgensons/Collberg/Gaunce there. I'd be happy with that.

If we are already sitting in the 11-14 spot, like I think we will be, I'd have to wait and see what's left on the board at that point.
