Idk.

We might be able to trade a defensive prospect for a forward prospect, considering our depth.
Detroit had one 1st round pick in the GRG lineup. Riley Sheahan. A 2nd/3rd line contributor.

Lack of 1st round talent playing in the AHL isn't why OKC lost. It's the terrible Oilers drafting in the 2nd/3rd round. Hamilton, Pitlick, Martindale have been terrible. Meanwhile guys like Jurco, Tatar, and Ferraro have stepped up as key contributors.
