Agreed, but then we should look to the Habs for inspiration.
In the 1971 draft they owned the first round pick of the Seals (California, or Oakland or whatever) and found that the Kings were getting a little too close for comfort. What did the Habs do? Why trade a decent player to the Kings for a bag of pucks of course.
Don't know what the Seals were thinking when they traded the pick, both Lafleur and Dionne were available in the upcoming draft.
Maybe they were afraid of the tank?
