Starting with the two 2nd round picks we got back for that putz McCarron not reporting. Add in a few more picks and at least Ottawa has something to look forward to for the next two years.
At the end of the day, trading depth players off the Knights' roster will not get the job done. If Monahan and Ceci are being talked about in trade discussions, a 1st round pick from this past draft is almost certainly amongst the assets on their way back to Ottawa. So, when you're talking, for example, Niki Petti from Belleville, Jacob Middleton from Owen Sound or Damian Bourne from Mississauga, its little wonder that the Knights would need to accept Bo Horvat as part of such a big trade. I understand if London fans don't feel that involving Bo Horvat in a trade with Ottawa it worth it (I'm sure you can find fans in the other 3 cities that feel the same) but there's little doubt in my mind that that's the starting point.

Unless you'd prefer Domi
