In that world, whoever you pick with that first rounder alone is likely to be better than the 20 year old you acquire on an offer sheet. Offer sheets make sense when your picks suck and you don't care about them. This is not that time.

And our prospect pool is deep with guys who don't project as elite players. We're not done.
I'm sorry, but a top 5 pick, especially next year, has very little chance of being better than Pietrangelo (drafted 4th), Bogosian (drafted 3rd) or Stepan (Younger than Hodgson, Ennis and Myers, 44 points, two way, 1st line center).
