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).

If we trade Burke we might end up with both. (sarcasm directed mainly at yet another Sean Burke trade value thread)

I notice that everyone seems to be clamoring for depth defensemen (reports of the Rangers looking for guys). I wonder how long Brad Ference is with the team. He might actually fetch a premium return.
