Pacioretty is not a solid base IMO. While a good player, I don't think we can rely on him to carry the offense. He's still a key piece of this team's success like Gorges is on defense. Adding a franchise center, something we've been missing forever, should provide some steadiness to this team.

The 3 draft picks are interesting since Timmins has been excellent in this round the last couple of years. Let's hope we'll be more than a bubble team in 2 or 3 years... Drafting Seth Jones would certainly help that
