Myers not an NHL defenseman? Myers' baseline play is that of a top 4 defenseman.

What I said implied Risto, Nurse, and Zadorov WILL be top 4 defensemen, they're just not more likely than Myers to be more than that. I want this team to draft one of Risto or Zadorov, by the way.

Saying you'd trade Myers for, say, Ristolainen, is one thing (crazy, but whatever). Saying you'd just trade him for a top 15 pick when you could easily not end up with any of those 3 players or a prospect even remotely as good as Myers is just ridiculous, sorry.

You are. Trading him for a top 15 pick is poor value. Myers as an underachiever is better than the return you're talking about, yet if he ceases to be an underachiever...
