If you really love next years draft, the best you can hope for is Sather stock piles picks for next year and trade up.
Exactly. They are running the risk of either overpaying Callahan and Girardi for more garbage, or losing them for nothing altogether.

It's going to be very tough to pry 2015 1st rounders, especially from mediocre teams.

Colorado rolled with diced with Varlamov and that pick was 11th overall. For a while we thought the caps would actually draft Yakupov.

I say roll the dice and see what henrik and the rangers can do without Girardi, Staal and Callahan from March to May.
