You don't give up first rounders until your are solidified playoff teams with studs at each position. Right now we have a good crop of forwards led by JT, but our defense is held down by Travis Hamonic, other than that there are no sure things. In goal we have a aging Nabby and Poulin and Nilsson are still developing.
