I disagree.

People forget that they have Ryan Murray, whom is injured and out for the rest of the season.

Our 1st rounder picks are important. Without it, our core wouldn't be here today.

Most teams are built around their 1st rounder picks. Sure you might get trashy players but regardless they are projected as a 1st rounder for a reason.

If somehow Columbus gets 1st pick and 2nd (from us, I HOPE NOT) they can easily solidify their problems. Seth Jones and MacKinnon

I saw Jones play in the WJC, the guy is pretty legit. Big defenseman who can play D and O. Good TWD.

I saw MacKinnon play in the subway series, the kid has some great skating skills and is not afraid to shoot.

These two will go 1/2 in my opinion.

So yes, the 1st round pick concerns me, regardless of whether or not we won the cup. I want another one and I want this team is succeed and at the same time stay young and competitive. You know what they say, once you win a cup you want another one.

We can't just be giving away our 1st rounder picks like Toronto. Can you imagine what kind of a team they would have been if it wasn't for the Kessel trade? I think Kessel is great but potentially giving up Seguin and Hamilton for Kessel? I know what ya'll are going to say. Burke probably would have picked another player, but from the looks of it Boston is definitely winning in that trade. Boston doesn't have to worry because they will be a playoff contender for another 5-7 years.
