I would argue that the NHL is almost like a zero sum game. Of course we would like to add more skill but it would be at the expense of improving somewhere else. Lets face it, this team is built on 1st round picks. If we aren't going to address a need through the draft, I don't have the confidence in our management team to add big physical players while only giving up small skilled guys.

Hall, RNH, Eberle, Paajarvi, Yakupov, Hemsky and Gagner are all 1st round picks. Given that our top 7 forwards were all drafted here, I just don't see us being able to trade for elite talent.

By all accounts, I think Drouin will be better than Eberle. I just don't see us moving Ebs and filling those holes we need.
