What we need is elite first line talent. I'm not opposed to packaging up some assets in order to acquire it.
I don't think anyone is. We have a lot of depth on the farm, in juniors, and in the college ranks. Our depth is astounding, and I could see the Coyotes trading into the top 6 or 7 picks. I don't, however, think they have the assets for Ovechkin, and frankly, I'm glad. I do not believe the hype about him being great. He'll be good, but I don't believe he will be the best player in the draft. If it were up to me, I'd hold onto my assets and make a push for Crosby (and we all know Gretzky loves the kid).
