We could've had him if we didn't lose the 2nd in the Burns trade (not saying I regret that deal). Although, San Jose sending that pick to Tampa for Dominic Moore was facepalm worthy (a bad trade even if you're trying to solidify your bottom six for a playoff run).

I will say, Buffalo had three great picks in a row (Grigorenko, Girgensons, McCabe).

And the funny thing is, they packaged their 2nd rounder and Nashville's 1st (from the Gaustad trade - IIRC) to move up to select Girgensons. They used Calgary's 2nd rounder on McCabe (which they got in that lopsided Robyn Regehr trade).
