But like I said before...he's still got the Hemsky card to play and there is nothing to say he can't put together an aggressive trade involving picks/prospects + Hemsky to get someone who can provide the muscle we need in the top 6.
He said his plan at the draft was a centre. He even said MacKinnon, Lindholm, and Monahan by name. He didn't get any of them, and now the team is going to end up with Lander or an equivalent.
