...I'd rather not trade up.
I did some research after the suggesting Moore, so I'll go ahead and give a Mea culpa on that one. I do however still think trading up (depending on where our picks are) still makes sense. The top of this draft is really impressive, and guys like Mackinnon, Jones, Barkov, Monahan, and Shinkaruk are all the type of players that would have been number one overall picks in drafts like last year.

Don't get me wrong, if we have the chance to get say Monahan, Erne, and Domi then yeah I agree we stand pat, but if we have the chance to turn two bottom 15 picks and a Defensive prospect into a top 10 pick I go for it. I think 2 elite talents are better than one elite talent and 2 good talents, but that is my opinion.
