Dalton Thrower went a couple picks prior to the 2nd rd pick we gave away for Liles, so we wouldn't have gotten him, makes it a little easier.
These 2 guys may be steals in a few years from now.
Are you trying to suggest that trading away picks when you're rebuilding is a silly thing to do?
Yea, there are a few guys I would have loved to grab. Malcolm Subban being near the top of the list. We have a number of guys who I'm REALLY hoping get sold off at the deadline this year. Lombardi, Connolly, and MacArthur for sure, I don't think any of them have a spot in the longterm plans. If we did that we could probably nab a top goalie prospect and another prospect. And then Bozak/Lupul depending on contract negotiations, I could see it worth our while to keep both of them but don't want to see either walk for nothing. We're not even remotely close to contenders, no point in holding onto pending UFAs.
