2nd (in the opposite year from the 1st)

I understand that's a lot, but I'm not at all motivated to surrender a top 3 pick in this draft, either. It would have to be an offer that I absolutely can't refuse. It would have to be overpayment to the point that most GM's wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole for fear of getting fired if the prospect in question busts.

I guess that means that in my opinion, if Calgary gets a top 3 pick, it isn't going anywhere. But then again, it's not at all up to me. It's Feaster's call. It sucks that that fact makes me so nervous.
I still wouldnt do that.
