Couturier and Voracek are good young players too, maybe a bit more skill but less likely to drop the mits.
Does a deal like this work?
1st rd pick 2012 (20th)
1st rd pick 2012 (9th)
Jets solidify their c and rw positions and use the 20th pick for a prospect dman like koekkoek or finn. Though if Faksa is there at #9, and philly takes him, I'd be pissed.
Flyers get a puck moving dman, a good c prospect and move up in draft.
A top 6 of Ladd/Little/Wheeler and Kane/Schenn/Simmonds appeals to me.
I wouldn't do that.
I think Enstrom alone gets you a guy like Simmonds and the 20th. Maybe even more if you look at what Burns returned. A thread that had pretty favorable response had Enstrom and a 2nd for Simmonds and Read. I still think we could get more, but that's maybe just me.
That leaves Schenn for Burmistrov and the 9th. I am nowhere near giving up on Burmistrov, and even though I wouldn't mind Schenn, Burmistrov AND the 9th is huge overpayment for me.
