The points about getting these 1st round picks in the same draft are good ones. If you spread the picks out over three drafts you may build a deeper prospect list.

BTW - the way JBo is playing you may be able to get more than a 1st and a prospect for him. I'd aim for a 1st, mid-range prospect and a decent roster player. You may also have to take back a larger contract with that roster player but the 1st and prospect will be worth it.
Im still a strong believer that many teams would be willing to give up a 1st for Kipper. Unless of course the injury really holds him back. despite his age, he's still a very dominant goalie and teams that are desperate for a goalie could throw in their 1st if they want to beat out the other bidders. Its all about waiting till the deadline and fishing in the best deal.

As for Bouwmeester, he very well could be worth more if we trade him next season. He's been great so far but its not a big enough sample size for his trade value to grow just yet.. But ya if he does continue to flourish under Hartley, we could very well get more. I'd like to keep him though, there are not many players that can skate and log those minutes like he does so well. But if we do decide to blow it up completely he definitely will have a lot of trade value.
