If Tambo can do this then he can stay.
Still won't have a goalie, still won't have a good enough defense, still a mediocre team.

That high first can't go toward another forward. Not with some of the defensemen that will be there in that top ten.

Edmonton's best hope is to wind up in the top 3 or 4, then try to move up to number one, hoping the team picking there needs a forward more than a defenseman and is willing to bypass Jones for Mackinnon\Drouin\Barkov
