I though so, but now I don't. We need wingers now (and maybe a long term solution for 2nd line center). With 4 picks in top60, we should aim for 3 fowards and one big stay at home D.
If we would have tanked this year...and somehow would have been able to get another 1st rounder....this team would have been a contender for years to come. That's how strong this draft is. Thing is, it is so strong, that it's clearly possible that some great gems will be picked up later than the top 5, even top 10, and even 2nd round. So if Timmins do that well....we will be great....but chances are we would have been better if a bad season would have also happened.

If Columbus is intelligent for once.....they can turn their franchise around just with the upcoming draft and their 3 1st rounders....
