I think trading down this year is riskier than other years because it's anyone's guess who any team will take or really wants. We speculate here but there's nothing lost if we're wrong. If Edmonton and CBJ speculate and are wrong, they could lose out on the guy they want. Now if they're happy with one of a few different guys fine, trade down, but if they have one guy in particular they want, like Murray and Forsberg, they better grab them or they might not be there when their turn rolls around if they trade down.
