This. Kuli is a great target to go after, but he is by no means without warts. If our pick was in the 8-13 range I would look at a Kuli + deal for the pick, but top 7 there is no way I would consider it.

Honestly the best option for getting the top 4 LD that we need is trading one of ROR or Stastny. ROR can't be traded for a while and will still have at least a few RFA years, so you trade Stastny at the draft or deadline this year for a top 4 LD + pick. A #3 center will be easier to find than a young top 4 LD, we might even have one now with Mitchell or if we are running 3 scoring lines again, Sgarbossa.
