Disagree with both. They still have 2 2nd rounders, a 1st and 2 3rds. He acquired those picks to use them at the deadline. We were able to keep all of our young talent which is the most important thing and didn't have to give up a player (well Gratton but who cares he would have never played on this team anyway). Plus Clarke had to up the ante because the Rags were going to get him and had to settle on Ozolinsh. It was a no brainer.
What are the chances that you will get a defensemen in 4 years as good as Gauthier with either of those picks? 10%? Look at Woywitka, he was a good prospect drafted in the mid 1st round and he can't even break the Blues lineup which means he would probably be behind Jones and Picard. Draft picks are a gamble (especially in hockey when drafting 18-19 yo's) players are a sure thing.
All of you thinking that we overpaid will love what he brings in the playoffs.
