A rebuilding team traditionally sells off NHL assets to try and draft high. Is this happening in CLB? No. LA's pick isn't likely to be high. Same goes for NYR's pick. These picks are just currency. The real assets coming back are NHLers that can contribute now.
They brought in Dubinsky, Foligno, Johnson and Anisimov to try and compete. They brought Carter in for the same reason. Only difference is, now CLB is trying to win with 2way depth instead of 2 high profile scorers on the top line. It doesn't mean they aren't trying win now at all, which is what you would expect from a clearly rebuilding club.
They had no idea L.A's pick would be that low.
And you name Dubinsky, Anismov, Erixon and Johnson like it's an impressive list. It's not.
