I've been thinking about it since draft day. I'm not a tanker but that's what I would have done in the off season if I were Bergevin :

Trade Plekanec for Anaheim's pick and Gorges for Washington's pick (there were trade discussions about it from both teams on the trade board at the time and fans for ANH and WSH agreed it would make a good trade for them too), draft Galchenyuk, and Forsberg and Grigorenko who sliped; dump a couple of bodies for 2nd rounders or late 1st.

Forsberg-Galchenyuk-Gallagher
Pacioretty-Grigorenko-Bourque
Armstrong-Eller-Prust
Moen-Dumont-White

Markov-Emelin
Subban-Tinordi
Diaz-Bouillon
Beaulieu

Price


It would be a very green lineup, we would miss the playoffs, there is the chance Tinordi and Beaulieu would be rushed, but at the same time all those minutes might give them valuable experience and help them grow, and it would be an exciting rebuild, a team that would become competitive after 1-2 years. I'm not sure if it's a good idea to post it, but I thought I'd rather get flamed than not get your opinions.
