(Just sorting out a value debate on our board--I'm surveying the teams who figure to be drafting ahead of the Flyers to see whether trading up is any kind of an option--and if so, at what cost).
Interesting proposal; definitely better than 80% of the ones on the trade forums. I like Couturier in Nashville given his very solid two-way play, but, with Forsberg in the picture and Wilson developing into a legitimate #1/2 C, I think you see us bet the barn on MacKinnon/Drouin if we end up at #1. The risk associated with the forwards in the 5+ spot appears to be materially higher if you believe the pundit network. I don't think the PHI trade works out, but it's certainly not terrible.
