That's still a very good pick, but not in the Jones/McKinnon/Barkov range.

As for Strome...there's speculation that he's headed to Tavares' wing. Pronman wrote that it'd be a waste to move him to the wing.
If you're confident, that's fine. I think that's the best offer I've seen for Edler, and even though it's future oriented, I can't turn that down.

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows
Booth-Kesler-Strome(or switch Kesler and Strome)
Higgins-Bailey/Schroeder-Hansen
Raymond-Lapierre-Kassian

as a forward group, and likely a player like Nichushkin or Ristolainen or Pulock would be too much to pass on. And I think there would be a reasonable chance it does end up being a top-5 pick.

Trade Luongo for a defenseman, and we would be set both now and the future.
