Tough to determine. We moved up to get Tinordi in his draft year based that we could not miss on a towering stay-at-home d-man that we didn't have in our pool. Yet, I could say that every player targeted to be around 20-30, would be something we would need as well. From scoring wingers, to high-energy forwards, to potential top 4 d-man (even if we have a good depth....).

Scary part is that if it is EXACTLY like the Tinordi case and we mostly move up because of needs.....the key targeted player could be.....Fucale. And I so don't want that. Fucale is a ND for me.....for now. If he pans out and it makes Price tradeable in 3 years because of how incredibly great Fucale has developed, well so be it. But as far as draft day is concerned, Fucale should NOT be a target. And I can't imagine if we move up to get him...that would be a double mistake.
