The other high 1st will be the Habs own draft pick in 2013. The late 1sts (possibly mid 1sts) we acquire by trading our vets will be to complement the future core. I remind you Pacioretty was drafted at 22 and Subban at 43.
Nobody is proposing we trade all six of Markov, Plekanec, Cole, Gionta, Kaberle, Bourque; we could try, but I *really* doubt there's that kind of demand in the trade market.
But let's say we did and got three 1st rounders and three 2nd rounders (at worst). Aside from getting an inside-the-park grand slam in the deep 2013 draft, we'd also clear 28 million dollars in cap space and six roster spots. We could then easily acquire new UFAs on the trade market in the 2013/2014 UFA market, we have no trouble signing supportive players on the UFA market.
In all honesty, if we get one more 1st, I'll probably be satisfied, it might be a tough selling market this year. Two additional 1sts and I'll be thrilled.
Galchenyuk's development will be optimized if he's given ice time rather than benched in favor of some mediocre veteran
every time he does the slightest mistake by a coach who wants to make 8th place.
5 of the 6 players you named have some form of NTC/NMC...
So what you're saying is Galchenyuk will developp better playing with Scrubs 20 minutes a night than if he has to play 10/15 with guys like Plekanec (for example) ?
