Taking a gamble when you're picking second to last is nothing short of a reach and it'll backfire real hard and rightfully so. If we were picking in the low teen's, I'd agree but that wasn't the case.

Like I've said numerous times, handing in the 29th overall pick when we went on a magical cup run wouldn't of bothered anyone and we would've accepted it 100x more then what we're about to go threw this summer.

It'll be another black stain to this organisation, who's still trying to fight the stereotype of "the trap". Now, reporters will have a field day with "the trap", "the forfeit" and let's not forget the "Mickey Mouse" comment made by the 2nd best player to play this game (I'm a fan of Lemieux over Wayne) years ago that still get's brought up once in a while.
