Maybe something like Laughton + our 11th for the #6 and #36 picks??? Is that something that Calg would entertain?

Also, Is Nurse THAT good, THAT much better than say Risto, Radolov or Pulock that it would be worth giving up the necessary assets to move up and get him???
Ristolainen is better than Nurse. I'd take him over Nurse everyday of the week and twice on Sundays. After Jones I rank the defensemen:

1. Ristolainen
2. Morrissey
3. Nurse
4. Zadorov
5. Pulock

Ristolainen has already been playing pros in Finland for two years since he was 16. He's everything you want in a defenseman and has all the tools necessary to be another great Finnish blueliner like Kimmo Timonen. He's got size, strength, poise, speed, creativity, defensive awareness, the total package.

If he's available at 11 and the Flyers choose another defenseman instead, I think they will be making a HUGE mistake.
