Clark was a great intangible player, he was tremendous as the 2nd or 3rd fwd to Gilmour but he wasn't the franchise despite being one of the most beloved Leafs of alltime. Our best 2nd rounders are Potvin who was a Calder finalist and arguably a franchise goalie, Randy Carlyle, a Norris winner, and Gary Leeman a 50 goal man.

What does this all mean? Means there are homeruns in 2nd rd so we shouldn't give them away, they aren't as obvious as in 1st rd picks but they can be found.
I'm the first one to be on board with keeping every pick we have, I just didn't think your argument sold me on keeping 2nd round picks since like I said since 88 we've had one starting goalie and no top 6 or top 4 dmen picked if those are our only picks that you posted.

I also don't believe you can go back that late to see paterns in the draft considering Scouting is so much better today then the 80's.

But i'm not worried....once the draft passes most people will stop preaching picks and start making trade and FA proposals as july1st and the seaspn start will become the next upcoming overhyped events on here.
Lol this. Flavour of the day really

meh there are other things to consider like cap considerations, what the alternative is for that player's roll, and age, but for the most part if you can get a youngish player that isn't overpaid, that does a roll you are missing out on (like the Liles trade) then you do that.

I wouldn't blanketly say trading 2nd rounders for roster players is always a good idea though.

What about Colton Sissons, Dalton Thrower, and Tom Wilson in 2012?

2nd round picks are just as important as 1st rounders. Even late round picks are just as important.

I'd advocate trading our 2nd up for a late 1st because I'm a member of the Tom Wilson bandwagon.
