I don't think any of those players makes up for a 1st rounder. Top 10 or otherwise. The 1st is currency. It may be used, or may be dealt at the deadline to get something more important.
Basically, I hope Gillis doesn't do a deal with TO without getting that 1st back. Bottom line.
But yeah none of those players are sure bets and as a GM, you do not want to get rid of Luongo unless one is a pretty sure bet and less likely a top 10 pick doesn't make it to be a pretty impact player
But between those 3 prospects, hard to imagine 2 of the 3 dont make it and become pretty good nhl players. plus to be honest, im not 100 percent confident in the canucks drafting abilities.
I can say one thing for sure, I definitely dont want Frattin over kadri. and im not even super high on kadri. as you know, i just dont think theres a spot for him yet
I'm not confident in the drafting either, which is why I view that pick as currency, as explained above.
I want Kadri over Frattin too. But he would get killed here under AV. Not to mention that Burke will regard his value as a top prospect. So either he gets thrown in and unsettles the over all value in the package, or he is left out and Gillis can bring in a good D prospect along with Frattin... It all comes down to how highly Kadri is viewed by Burke.
