Because this draft is absolutely insane IMO.

All of Jones, MacKinnon, Drouin, Barkov, Nichushkin, Lindholm, Monahan have serious star potential. And there are quite a few other guys who have incredible upside. All of the named would go top 5 without a doubt in anyother year. If we got a Top 10 pick, odds are we get one of those guys.
I am beyond convinced in this draft. If Sherman trades away our 1st and does not get a superstar in return, I will be so pissed it is not even funny. The way we look now, we have a legit shot at one of the Top4.
There is no Dman available that I would trade a TOP4 pick in this draft. Not Yandle, not MDZ, not Kulikov and certainly not Gardiner (just had to add him sorry).

But this conversation is better suited in the draft thread I guess..
