Maybe Read + 41 gets us into the late teens or early 20's, but this is really the year to have multiple picks.
This draft is so ridiculously deep; particularly on defenseman.
You come out with Shinkaruk at 11 and Morrissey with one of CBJ's or CGY's picks for Read+41, and you've just won draft day.
Well maybe not "won," but you've easily had one of the better drafts.
You lose Read for two years, but replace him with Shinkaruk almost immediately...and you still pull Morrissey.
I wouldn't doubt if we could trade Read straight up for Calgarys #22. I read somewhere that they have liked Read for a long time and they are just stupid enough to do it.
But in all honesty I think it is more likely that we don't pick in the first round at all than picking twice in round 1
