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).
It's kind of amazing how many teams, inlcuding the Wild, have overpaid in a trade for the turdsandwich that is Dominic Moore. It's facinating.
