i'll reserve judgement but i don't see this as being a move to put us in cup contention
Can't imagine there were many deals that would. Only a finite amount of sellers and we only have a modest amount of expendable assets. Wouldn't be surprised if Lou had this deal in his back pocket in case nothing else materialized.
it's hilarious because we only have a 1,2, and 6 pick this year. Odds can't be great from that hahaha
We still got our 4th (Ponikarovsky cost us a 7th this year and a 4th next year). 90% of the home fans that attend the draft will leave after our first pick anyways. And there might be some plausible trade down scenarios if they really want to accumulate picks.
