So, everyone is losing their **** about that draft pick when realistically, in what world do we have a shot to draft a premiere player as in a top 10 pick in that draft? Hopefully not this one.

And, complementing point, don't you think if we're going to miss the playoffs next year, that Sather will be wise enough to dump a guy like, ahem, MSL to a contender for a 1st round pick? Not to mention Marc Staal (who the same people believe is running away to Carolina anyway), or (blasphemy) Cam Talbot could get quite a bit of a return, too?
Do you really think if we are within any kind of shouting distance of a playoff spot in 2015 that Sather will begin selling? With Lundqvist and Nash even closer to the closing of their windows? With Sather's constant MO to mortgage the future for the present?

It may seem nice to type that to make yourself feel better about that first rounder we sacrificed in a strong and deep draft year of 2015, but the reality states there is almost no chance that could possibly happen.

There is a much better chance of us trying hard but missing the 2015 playoffs and getting 'lucky' enough to shoot our way up that strong draft in a lottery, when we don't even hold our own draft pick.
