This draft really reminds me the 2002 draft: you had 3 "franchise" players in the making- the smooth skating defenseman with size and offensive ability in Bouwmeester, a goalie with potential to be best in the League in Lehtonen and the guy with it all, size, hands, speed in Rick Nash.

Then the next teir with very good NHL'ers (Lupul, Pitkanen, Whitney, Upshall and Bouchard).

If we get into the top 3, I could see us swapping with the other two basement feeders to ensure that we get the guy we want (hopefully it's Seth). Just like Florida traded down with C-Bus and did a minor trade with Atlatna to ensure that they got the guy they wanted (though I do hope we won't be as cheap in our motivation for doing so). Drouin and MacKinnon are considered just as good as him though.
