however if you do end up with the 1st overall pick
okay... that's great
regardless of the situation
(of course you have to ignore the amount of great players who weren't drafted 1st overall but just a few spots down, or even late 1st rounders)

the last thing this city needs is a year without playoffs
Can you honestly say this team is strong enough to any more than MAYBE fight for a 8-10th spot? IF everything goes their way.

So lets be honest. Call it for what it is.

Sell some of the good assets Burke got for us for some 1st overall picks.

You want to wait until the end before we sell.

Well if EDM is 10pts back at the deadline they sure as hell aren't going to give us a 1st for Phaneuf. But right now he might be. They might finish bottom 10.

I don't want the team to be 30th every year. I want them to be 30th this year!
And I want them to sell enough asets off to get atleast 1 if not 2 more top 10 picks.

There is no #1C available via trade. You can't bank on Getzlaf coming here. ROR is not the answer.

Therefore we need to get a #1C through the draft. If we could get one via trade I would be all for it. I don't want to wait any longer than I have to to have a shot at the cup. But there is no one available that is good enough to lead us past the Rangers and Bruins in a 7 game series.

Wanting to chase that 8th playoff spot just "because", only means you are part of the problem.

It's a half year. Let it go an fix the team.
