It's a weak UFA market, I'm sure a lot of teams will be interested. I would be shocked if MB can't get a 4th or 5th rounder out of it.
His value shouldn't be far off Streit's. With the UFA market getting thinner and thinner the last few years we have seen more UFA rights trades. This year should be no exception, we have already seen Gonchar and Streit moved.
Even if we only get a 6th or 7th it's another "plate appearance" for Timmins. Drafting is all like baseball at bats, if you get a good head scout(batter) and give him a lot of plate appearances(picks) he should get you a good amount of prospects(hits).
