You can get some gems in the 2nd round, though i agree the Thrashers/Jets have yet to see that.

For me, it all depends what the market is for him, and whether he is willing to sign. If he's like Slater and might re-sign, then by all means sign him to a fair contract. If he's going to check the market and move on, then a 2nd and 3rd (Oduya deal) is better than truly nothing.

You can use the extra picks to move draft positions or gain prospects, etc.
