2011-2012 the team scored 232 goals. Fro Glenns list.

Fisher, Legwand, Wilson, Bourque, Beck, Hornqvist, SK, Forsberg, Spaling, Gaustad, Clune, Halischuk and Smith

This lineup is not going to put up over 200 goals even if the Preds got Mac there still not going to be close. This team defensivly is not as good as 2011-12 either. There is a real confidence issue for the team and there has been most of this abysmal season.

I can't hope even for one loss and really do not understand how anyone could. I get many are coinvinced a top 3 pick will fix the ills of the team. It could help but not a noticable help for a couple years. If ths team ges into Oct with the same players that were listed they stll do not have a legiimate 1st line, adding a top 5 pik will not change this next year.
Who cares about next year only.

Getting a pick like Drouin/MacKinnon could change the fortunes of a franchise for a decade or more. We've got Weber and Rinne locked up for like 13 and 6 more years respectively.

Getting a talent like that, especially considering we're not the Rangers and we don't go out and buy one, seems alot more important than one meaningless win over an AHL roster in a non-playoff year anyway.
