Am I the only one that thinks trading down is a much smarter option? This draft doesn't really have the top-flight, consensus, safe top players. Plus, Jarmo's knack seems to be finding diamonds in the rough which this draft may have plenty of. Hell, I'll go so far as to predict that the best player to be selected in this draft ten years down the road will probably not come from the top 10 picks. I just think that if we moved down to around 15 while picking up another top 40 pick, we could still get a guy with as much potential (Backlund, Eller) as most of the players in this year's upper tier and then get 4 more chances after that to find a few more winners. I guess what I'm saying is that I don't think I'd be willing to trade Mikael Backlund and Patrick White for Pat Kane, Kyle Turris, or JVR.
