Chances of Toronto finishing outside of the top 10 in the draft is highly unlikely, given the fact that they haven't made enough significant changes in the offseason that would suggest them moving up over 10 teams. Therefore, the original offer of a 1st would be anywhere from 1st - 10th overall.
As an Oiler (hemsky) fan, and looking at who I could get in the top 10 of the last couple of drafts, I would take the chance, and take the 1st rounder, and a couple of the spare parts in Kadri and Colborne.
Maybe because Luongo on the Leafs improves them enough to take them to the playoffs? You're seriously underestimating how impactful a top 5 goalie can be.
Go ahead and take the spare parts. I wouldn't and I certainly hope Gillis doesn't.
