Oilers seem amenable to taking Reinhart and he should be around at #5.. Columbus is desperate for roster pieces to get back to respectability NOW... prospects isn't really what they need. The environment is there for Burke to wheel and deal to get what he wants.
It is all fine and dandy wanting the top 2 picks but I don't see TO having what it takes to get both of them.
Lets say Schenn and 5th gets you the 2nd over all, now how do you get the 1st over all. The only player EDM would be interested in from TO would be Gardiner but you have nothing else to add to get the 1st.
