Let me put it this way: teams are paying first or at least second round picks for second-pair defensemen who are impending UFAs just to have them for the playoffs. If the only thing we get out of Sauer for the rest of his career is a few playoff games, that's worth well more than a 5th round pick.
Considering that he was living a normal life half a year ago, Sauer should be ready well before the playoffs.
You have no idea what you are talking about. McIlrath will be ready long before Skjei. He's a superior talent and he's 2 years older. McIlrath will be in the NHL in 12-24 months. Skjei will still be in college.
I did not say this. I think you need to read what I wrote, and stop trying to figure out how you are going to jump all over my response.
