Both. If you're going by pick values, the top 3 picks are worth anywhere from 850-950. Assuming we pick 8th, that pick has a value of around 625. Adding on Minnesota's pick (depending where they finish) adds anywhere from 275-350. That alone brings you around the value of a top 3 pick. Adding on a second round pick worth around 200, plus a good roster player? That's terrible asset management. I get the understanding that you'd probably have to pay to move into the top 3, but that's overboard and not worth it, especially since NOBODY IS GUARANTEED to be good at the NHL level.
