I don't think those guys are bad players, not at all, you could fall with a guy like Giroux at any random notice.

I just think if the Caps really "tank" you might as well "tank" a little more and deal a player to move up if you don't like anyone there.
The way drafts go now most GMs are dying for any 1st round picks when at the table.

Ultimately, we can fall back on FA. It's a huge class and we'd have a ton of cap space. Perry, Clowe, Kostitsyn, Ryder, Weiss, Horton, Penner, Roy, Zubrus, Weiss, Higgins/Jones/Cleary/Dupuis/NystromTorres/Clarkson/Antro/Poni/Richardson/Morrow for 3rd line depth. On defense Timonen, Scuderi, Streit, Smid, Regehr, Whitney, Lydman, Roszival, Ference, your favorite Leopold and Murray/Fistric for bottom pairing grit specialists. Backstrom, Nabokov, Howard, Smith as veterans on goal.
