The 1st round pick(in a great draft and in the middle round, so likely joins our roster after 1 year, think Pulock, Lazar, etc type of player) can either be used for ourselves,also making it more palatable to move our 1st in a move for a deadline deal like Perry.
Kulemin - agreed
Kadri - 40 points is reasonable and if he cracks the roster this year it's great value (young player on ELC). I still have doubts about whether AV will allow a rookie with some defensive holes in his game playing time over someone like Raymond/Higgins/Hansen.
1st - I don't think a mid range pick cracks our roster in a year, just not Gillis' style. Hodgson/Schroeder/Tanev all payed their dues in Chicago for a prolonged period.
The package needs something more, another asset like in the Nash trade.
