A. Vermette
L. Korpikoski

TB 2013 1st rd pick
K. Aulie
C. Conacher
T. Pyatt.

Taking vermette away from phx without returning a true #1 C puts PHX in a tight situation, so I had to make up for it. In return I get a highly underrated(Everyone in TBC should know) center with blazing speed and hands, not to mention physical ability. And also get a underrated winger with just as much speed as vermette to add the the lightnings already blazing speed.

Did I give up a lot, yes, but not having Lecavier for 50 games would put me in a even worse of a spot.
That's not really an overpayment. (Not that I think one is necessary)

Korpikosky is at least as useful as Pyatt, no?

So its a 1st, a D prospect, and a forward prospect, for a top-line C.

That's about right, if you look at real-world values.

In this game, I think that's a comfortable win for TB, unless that pick ends up being top-10 or so.
