Not sure, but I don't think I'd want to trade our 1st next year since it's supposed to be a very strong draft class. That is, unless we can somehow get a top 10 pick.

A pink slip. A GM would be an idiot if he traded his first rounder next year.

Sounds about right for Holmgren.

??? Trading a future draft pick is not uncommon and certainly doesn't warrant firing a GM. If you get something good in return for it and are in a position to trade it, why not? The Flyers, are not in a position to trade their first round pick next season. #1, they are trying to shed salary, not add it so unless it was for other picks or prospects, it wouldn't work out at all, and #2, as has been noted time and again this team has no prospects. Other teams, however, are in a position to do so. Teams with a ton of prospects but no NHL power would be open to it if the right deal came along, I'm sure, and their GM would not be fired.

This year's draft is supposed to suck. Next year's is supposed to be good. I'd rather keep next year's.

Not that it's completely the same, but in the NFL there's typically a one-round premium for picks in the next year. A few years ago, Holmgren traded a 2nd round pick in 2008 plus an '07 3rd to get back into the 2nd round in 07.

I'm not advocating trading next year's pick or anything like that, I was just responding to the other poster who said a GM would be fired for doing that.

Is this when he drafted Marshall 2 spots ahead of Subban?

Come on now... the Flyers haven't had a first round pick in a few years. And a second since Jesus was a baby. Please let us keep the damn first rounder in a strong draft!

A for effort with all the typing, but the original question was what would a first rounder in next year's draft get in this year's draft?

Ha, while I did respond to the question thinking the question was different, it still applies. If a team is loaded with prospects and wants to acquire an NHL player at the draft, why not trade the first rounder next year?

Eh, almost everyone has been saying that. Next season is supposed to be as good as 03 was.

Please, just let me think this draft year is bad. We don't pick until 84, and thinnking it's ok because it'll just be a crapshoot makes me feel better.
