Or swap in Monahan/Nischushkin...two guys who could be as good as Berglund now, but with 7-9 years of contractual control.
Pretty narrow choices...
Here's another...In those 3 years while waiting for that draft pick we could also be bottom feeders again, by which the current crop of young stars become disenchanted with the organization and want to leave..

Lots of things can happen with or without the pick. We've been bottom for enough years. Make use of the asset and get a player(s) to help now...If that isn't available, fine, take what's left in the draft..
