Fair enough.

But would you rather a decent 'effort' this year (which i fully expect even after the trade)

or

a set up future.

If we end up trading Grabo for a 1st ....and go into the draft with 3.


Lets say 15 , 20 and 25.

Those are pieces that set up a total rebuilding team, yet we have pieces already in place and a well run team. Think about a Buffalo-type last draft.

Trading up and snagging 2 high-potential forwards.

say Domi + Shinkaruk/Erne.



I fully understand where people are coming from, I like Dion too - would love to win with him. But the Surplus provided by Burkes trades, makes it interesting and gives us the ability to make these 'help us now, and in the future deals'
