This team is going for it now. A first rounder will take half a dozen or more years to fully develop, and that's assuming he won't be a bust, a rather large assumption considering that 2/3 of the late first rounders and 50% of the mid-first picks never make the NHL.

This team isn't rebuilding now. If anything, it should give up more picks to improve for a Cup run next year.

Mr. Fusco: No, Tony! You can't **** the future. The future ****s you! It catches up with you and it ****s you if you ain't planned for it!
