No one has asked for that...We would like at least one piece that holds value to us, such as Lupul or a 1st or something. Packages of 4 or 5 'meh' pieces don't help us at all.

Thanks we will take your luck and hope one of our prospects becomes our starter instead of giving up a massive amount of our future for a goalie who will be on the decline when we are ready to even compete....
Toronto + Luongo + Getzlaf/Weiss/Zajac/etc looks like a competitor to me. Lupul, Phaneuf, Grabovski, Kessel, are all in their primes right now. Every year you spend tanking for picks is a wasted year of contention for them. I didn't mean it to sound as awful as it did, I was simply replying tounge-in-cheek.

What did you base these rankings on? Also, Boston traded Thornton to make room for Bergeron, that doesn't mean Bergeron was better. Schneider is 7 years younger, and thus extends our ability to contend that much longer than Luongo, which is why we're trading him. But no one would say Schneider > Luongo right now.
