If its just a third, then most of us would easily agree with you. I want to construct a more challenging scenario: what if the Jackets are clearly out of the playoffs and Jarmo is offered a late 1st, or a 2nd + 3rd? Then what would you do?

True, the odds are you won't get a Vinny quality player out of either of those picks, but there is a significant chance (>5%) that you get a player much better than Vinny ever was.

Nope. Eberle was maybe briefly ahead of Hall last year, but Edmonton's bloggers and boards consistently rate Taylor Hall, taken 1st overall, as the best player on the team. Here is the top 25 under 25, something Copper 'n Blue does every year.
