Timeline and Need wise it just fits perfect for us IMO.

Also, first round picks are overvalued in a brutal way- that being said, if ever their was a year they are even close to proper value it would be this one, provided you believe the hype.
Agree with you completely Grind. I doubt Ottawa trades him but he is exactly the kind of defenseman we wanted Hainsey to be an he's just entering his prime. Our biggest hole is scoring but a shut down LD to play with Bogosian or Trouba makes a ton of sense. We don't have anyone in the system that even projects to be as good as Methot is now.

AFAIC any pick outside the top 10 for a good top six forward/top four defense that fills a need is a smart trade to make. Too bad Bryan Murray is smart enough to know this lol
