My motivation to try to acquire a defenseman would obviously increase if the Visnovsky trade is voided. That would put 2013 2nd round in play. I see a 2013 #2 + Prospect + Bailey as still being centered around Bailey, because I see him as the most valuable asset.
Moreover, I think the difference between 4th overall and 12th overall, in the context of the 2012 draft, is being overstated. I thought that going in, which is why I wanted to move down.
In sum, I don't think a difference in perspective is a reason to call someone stupid.
A lottery pick is worth WAY more then the player you are offering up. That's not an oppinion that is fact.
