Doubt Gillis is after picks considering win-now strat.

That said, it would be strange that EDM wouldn't get Lu and Ballard for something. Seems like a perfect fit. The inter-division thing might be it. God EDM would look good.
What don't you get...Gardiner IS NOT going to be traded for Luongo or be any part of a Luongo trade. I know you wish the more you mention it the better the chance of it actually happening but sorry to burst your bubble Gardiner is pretty much untouchable. Burke was adamant getting him in the Beauchemin trade along with Lupul. Burke drafted him and absolutely loves the kid. His potential is through the roof. I know you value Luongo very highly but at least be realistic with your trade ideas.
