Fair enough! I guess that is a no go trade then. Just me being greedy with assets! Lol, my bad guys.

But I guess what my point is that unless we get an elite-ish NHL player that is also under 25, not a vanek, there is no point in trading the pick, just draft Mack, drouin or barkov and develop a young star (hopefully/likely) and also pay him a ton less cash for first three years!

I always liked the idea of drafting your star players and this is perfect chance. If getting guys like stamkos is out of question, poile do what you gotta do and get us Mack! 'Nuff said!
