You'd have to make the trade before the draft. If they get that far, the value of the pick becomes too high.

We could cross that bridge if/when it happens.

Don't you want to hear bob's top10 anyway?

You look at the Championship teams now they have the 1-2 elite center combo and I think with RNH-Grigs you have that for years to come.
We just need a competent GM and Coach
I'm not really loving the idea of getting Yakupov either but if hes that good you have to take him. Or work out some elaborate trade strategy.

You could move Hall to center.

You're overestimating youth and potential in the idea that any good prospect will simply replace established NHLers along with the dream that gambling with a draft pick will net you a better player. The reason this seems like a good idea is because it's funner to hope for the future success of a player than see the reality of what they turn into.

But hope and potential doesn't win hockey games.
Way too much to give up. I might consider moving either of those two, without the pick though.

I don't see it as a problem, and yeah they wouldn't necessarily be on the same line.
