That's the key if Hamilton and Strome go to the NHL or get moved the pick could get better. The pick has slowly gotten better through the past month. I have confidence that Barrie, London, Owen Sound will all finish ahead of Niagara. Oshawa, Belleville, Brampton, Sarnia, Plymouth, Guelph, Kitchener. Like you said the pick can be in the 30 range. Dangle that pick and a player to a team like Peterborough if they still have their import pick and move up or if a team like Sudbury still has their import pick for 2013 trade with them. Sudbury already has 2 95 imports in Kubalik and Kahun both who have been quite productive. You could still end up with a top 10 import pick and a top 20 pick. That is certainly good enough to get some good players and if you deal Khokhlachev maybe Larionov will help you out and send one his top guys to Windsor during the import draft.
