I disagree, collecting picks by trading assets could drop our wins enough this year to possibly pick one of the top 2, and in addition to that it enables us to stack picks up in order to trade up at the draft to the pick we want if we don't get it in the lottery. Yakupov or Gringreko seem to be in the mold of franchise game breaker type players and thats a kind of player we have been severely lacking up for a long time in the forward position.
