Wouldn't augmenting our picks by trading likely departing superstars still accomplish this, and also allow us to draft higher?
Yeah, 1-8,1-16 to move up I don't think I'd do. Maybe I'm ansy to see who are stars are when Vanek/Miller depart.
I see your reasoning, but I have this gut feeling that when we look at this draft 7 years from now, MacKinnon will be remembered as the best pick-up in the draft. I'd love to find a way to move for him while keeping our other 1st. Given our resources, I feel we can.
