At that point, don't you have to take him? Odds are, no matter what you trade down to, you're getting a far inferior player than Jones.

And if you're trying to trade down for a player and a pick, as good as Jones is, you're not going to get that young superstar forward we're looking for plus a high pick.

Might be better off letting the kid grow as a Pred and then using him as trade bait later on.

Either way, we are in a great position. If i'm Carolina, I'm kicking myself, stuck at #5 in a 4-elite player draft.
Definitely would trade down! Someone would pay us a kings ransom to get that pick and get jones, then we still draft nichushkin after. If that actually was a reality I would be ever so delighted!!

My big question though I would love an answer to guys,

Is this FACT that nichushkin will definitely come to NHL next season?! Or is it just talk and he will not 'break' his khl contract, just wants higher draft position?!?!
