While Kadri has Hodgson like question marks, and Frattin doesn't wow, Finn, and especially the first are good assets. I don't know about much about Finn's defensive game, but his point totals and draft status indicate he's not invaluable. The first, though, is probably the sticking point of the deal (and why Burke stubbornly won't make a deal like it). That first would be in the 16-20 range in a strong draft. With that, and the 30th pick , the Canucks would be able to restock more forward depth.

The question I have for you y2k then is, what if Frattin, who has the least upside was replaced by Kulemin (who I know you don't like) in the deal? Would you except that? Before you say "7 goal season" add "a plane full of friends crashed" and re-ask the question?

Kadri, Kulemin, a 1st and Finn... naw, it couldn't happen.
