Especially when Samuelsson brings the grit, scoring and ability to play C the Oil so sorely lack.
You can only trade up if the other teams are willing to deal. They had a pair of 3rd rounders last year, if that's what it too, I'm pretty sure that they would've ponied up. This year we have a pair of 2nd rounders, it'll be interesting to see if we'll use both or use one or both to trade up or add roster players.

Treat Others As You Would Like To Be Treated
