And then do what to fix the gaping hole that is our defense now and for the future? Trade Couturier for a guy who hasn't been able to hold a steady nhl job like Runblad? A guy who's taken a scary big step back like Meyers? A guy who's been stuffed in the minors by a team who hasnt made the playoffs since the silent era like Gardiner? It's easier to draft a blue chip defenseman if you have a high draft pick than it is to trade for a blue chip defenseman after the BPA with your pick isn't a defenseman.

If we're at, for example #5, Id be disappointed if homer didnt try to do whatever was in his power to move up to the top 2 for Jones.
