We would have been a better team tomorrow and in 5 years and in 10 years if we had traded our pick for Schneider than if we had used our pick on Morin. If we had made a move that hurts and traded coutireir and our pick at 11 for Nashvilles pick at 4 and drafted Jones then we'd have been a better team today and in the future.
I love Coots and don't want to trade him but lets be real here, Coots is NOT a difference maker and neither is Morin. JONES most likely will be. Maybe Jones doesn't pan out but he certainly has a much better chance to be a real difference maker than either of those 2. Give me a choice between Jones and Coots + Morin and I take Jones every time.
Based upon how quickly Nashville selected Jones, homer didn't even call them
Sorry, but you have NO IDEA whether this kid will improve our team in the future. He's not 18 yet, so we won't see him in Philly 2 years.
As far as your IFs are concerned, on what basis are you assuming that Couts + 11 would have gotten us the 4th pick?
Nashville just won the friggin' lottery, because TB was stupid and took Drouin over Jones. Why would they even consider trading the pick once Jones was available? That's just stupid thinking.
If all our scouts, esp. Nolet, wanted Morin, and Pronger agreed, I'm glad they didn't ignore their own advice and go with the latest HF boards bullcrap....
