I don't disagree that they should have moved up or traded the pick for a good d-man, but what we need is a franchise-caliber d-man and they just weren't available for anything less than a cost that would essentially bankrupt the franchise of prospect talent.

If you're railing on about not getting Jones at #4, I don't think that NSH would have traded the pick, just as I doubt TB would be willing to move it for a huge cost. At the cost that it would take to move up, I'd rather give up a bit more in the way of assets and acquire a proven top-pairing D-man. We all know what Calgary wanted for their pick (Coby+Read+11) and I think we can agree that is too extreme a price... so why are you *****ing and moaning?

Nobody knows what Morin will become, the dude isn't even old enough to walk into a titty bar yet. He's boom or bust, and if he booms, he'll be the best player in the draft behind Nate Mac and Jones imho.
