With the prospect pool Ottawa is drawing from I would not worry about 20-30 goals that have to be made up after loosing MM
Ottawa's drafted very well in it's 20 years history and yet, they've only drafted 16 players who've ever had a 40+ point season. Most other teams have worse records. That's the problem with prospectitis; it sets unrealistic expectations. Ottawa already needs to fill 4 other Top-6 forwards slots with player who prove they can produce. Brandon Gormley is way too far from proving himself as a potential top pairing D-man to accept in trade for Michalek right now. Becoming half as good as Michalek has been an achievement for most 13th overall picks.

66 pts, 55 pts, 57 pts, 60 pts... all in the past 6 seasons.
