Yes, Evander Kane is worth 2 1st round picks. So is Pacioretty. In all honesty, I would NOT trade Pacioretty for the 3rd overall and another unknown 1st rounder.

I would definitely like to get Evander Kane in Montreal, but the assets it would require would be too much for us to give....unless Winnipeg would go for something around Plekanec, Beaulieu, and our 2012 2nd (which is almost a 1st). I just don't see Winnipeg accepting that deal, even if the value is fair because Kane is so good and necessary for their continued development.

Quality needs quality.

Would you trade Pacioretty for the 3rd overall this year and some unkown 1st rounder next year? Think about it.

In all honesty, a trade around Evander Kane would need someone like Subban or equivalent going the other way.
