I agree with building through the draft, but at same time, losing a late first rounder is not the end of the world. That said, Bergevin will only trade for someone if he thinks he has a good chance of re-signing him next year. I think piucking up Clowe is a good idea because he's having such a bad year, that we could afford him next year. Also, by picking up Clowe, we could easily find someone to trade his rights to for 4th,5th, 6th rounder maybe this July, if we didn't want to sign him ourselves.
