trade awy a few picks or prospect just to try to make a run this year?

NO NO NO.
One of the best GM the habs ever had was Sam Pollack. Maybe most of you don't remember how he did it.
Almost all trades went this way.
Sam would trade away 3rd or 4th line players for HUGE assets.
If you deal from a stacked team, every player looks like Crosby.
Keep you prospects, teach them well in the AHL ( remember the black aces) Other GM's will be glad to pay a 1st pick or more for your hand-me- downs from a stacked club. Sam got the better deal 90% of the time. This is how you keep getting the best 1st rounders
