I'm not trading Myers for a pick outside of the elite area. MacKinnon, Jones , Drouin and Barkov are a clear cut ahead of everyone else and at #5 it's almost a certainty none of the 4 will be there. Myers potential is higher then any player in the draft outside of the big 4. One bad lockout shortened season isn't going to make me want to trade Myers, especially after watching him his first 3 seasons where he was without a doubt a true top pairing dman. And considering we paid 12 million this year out of his 38.5 million dollar deal, it makes no sense to trade him. Trading Myers so we can draft Lindholm or Monahan (who may very well make it to #8) is extremely underwhelming to me.
