I agree. I'd hate to see a Staal or McDonagh go, but we need to draft a legit young superstar in the top 3. End of the story. It's what we've lacked for as long as we can all remember. Bringing in guys like Gomez, Drury, Redden, Richards, Gaborik, Nash and even going back, Lindros, Bure, Gretzky, etc. all at 27 years or older is not the solution. In the case of Nash or Gabby in years past, it can be a SUPPLEMENT to the solution. The other drafting (Cally, Lundqvist, Stepan in the second, Hagelin, etc.) has been good to create a supporting cast. A guy like Nash could be a great supplement. We need to draft our own stud forward.
