Moore and the picks AINEC. Trading two firsts and a top defense prospect to move up 8 spots on one of those firsts is Milburyesque, and I don't care how much you think it'll land on black this go-around or how hot you think the dice are.

If you want to trade blueliners, trade them after they're developed and thus of high value. Having a Blueline Of The Stars can make up for a whole hell of a lot of other issues; just ask Nashville, or the '07 Ducks.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
