We thought Dumba was on our radar back then, it seems more true now. I wonder if Trouba or Forsberg were maybe an option in a trade down scenario, which Burke was looking to entertain.

Well played by Mo to not move up, almost for sure our 2nd rounder would have went to the Isles, and as you mentioned, we really got another 1st round caliber prospect with that pick.

I have to mention, I liked what I saw from Burke in the way he operates. He certainly let Mo run things (I wasn't quite sure if he did before) and I like how he let Snow know that he wasn't going to make a bid for the swap asap.
Were the top 3 already picked when Snow 1st talked to Burke?
