Not saying it's of equal worth, saying that it's what it'll take. ****, maybe it'll only take Nielsen + a first but I doubt anything less would do.
Even before Vis pulled his latest 'it's not you, it's me ' stunt , most hockey observors thought the isles were gonna be a draft lottery team.

Now, instead of having a solid vet in the top 4, the isles place a rookie with no NHL experience in that spot and expect to push for a playoff spot?

It's a 48 game season. Isles first round pick is likely to be in the running for Seth Jones, even with Gormley in their top 4.

No interest in moving the isles firstrounder, until after the draft lottery determines the draft order.
