I think what Lamoriello was getting at is that a 29th pick with one or two years of experience is more valuable than a 20-30 pick in the next two drafts.

Only way that backfires is if we get a lottery pick in the year we are forced to forfeit. If the year we forfeit the pick is over 15, it will likely be 2014 because we host the draft next year, then I think you can say that Matteau with two years of development is better than most guys you'd get past 15 in that draft.
