[QUOTE=Sharksrule04;49150673]IThis is why I suggested trading into the top 5. We need a player that can take the reigns in 3-4 years from Thornton. What is our top 6 going to look like in 4 years?

I say we trade Clowe, Demers and more to get into the top 5 or 6 and draft one of the star forwards that is available in this draft.

I'd be willing to trade Pavelski even to get into the top 5 or 6.

Good luck with that one. Post lockout there has only been one trade out of the Top 5 in a draft I believe. A bit on memory, but Toronto to 5 to pick and Schenn and Nashville gave up the 7th+. What you are suggesting doesnt get a whiff of top 5 and unfortunatley alot of the SJ team is at their lowest trade level for cap or performance reasons.
