2015(I think that's this years) 1st Rd pick(7th overall)

The jackets are sad to see Umberger go but are very excited to bring in a real talented player in Stepan from New York.

Tough to let go of a young, core piece, but last year's acquisition of M. Richards forced Stepan to the wing anyway. The organization is lacking in young, high-end talent in its prospect pool, so the top-10 pick should help.

Umberger gives me a legitimate top-6 LW, and he tends to sim very well. Depending on Kreider's progression, he might see time on the 1st or 2nd line. Ideally, I'll be able to drop Callahan to the third line / general top-six injury replacement.

I take a bit of a hit at center, particularly with Brodziak being UFA.
