To answer the question of why we need a decent first rounder...it's for the same purpose we used 3 of the last 4 picks for.

To trade away either in the offseason or deadline to get the one impact player we happen to be missing. Last season we had to overstock the NHL team because Penner and Gagne were hurt...Lombardi went out and got Carter. That move saved the season along with the hiring of Darryl Sutter. Before that we traded a first for Mike Richards and before that we traded for Dustin Penner.

A first rounder simply is more flexible in value than a single position player in Bernier come trade deadline.
