Not sure how reliable that is, but we certainly have a "top-line forward" available...

Please make it happen Darcy. All of your sins will be absolved.

So either Nicushkin or Nurse on the board I'm thinking.

Seems like the only guys that will be 100 percent off the board by 16 are SM, SJ, NM, EL, JD and AB.

A guy like HS/DN/RR/NZ/BH/MD could possibly be available at #16

I just think their will be available at #16 that we all thought would be gone by then.

Seth, Mac, Drouin, Barkov, Lindholm, Nurse, Monahan?

Leaving you with Ristoleinan, Shinkaruk or Nichushkin?

Poile isn't actively looking to trade the pick, though, and would require a top-line forward in exchange.
Vanek for #4

My guess is that they wouldn't want Vanek and his expiring contract as much as Hodgson+.

Im not sure who the unpopular choice would be... I think it's a tough call between those 3.

personally, yes, I would be disappointed if you took Shinkaruk.

I would've taken Ristolainen... easy choice for me.

Hey, I thought you hung up.

I hope they want Vanek. I'll even eat some of his salary (Preds more a budget team than a cap team).

I would reluctantly trade Hodgson to improve the team.

draft strategy:
trade as many veteran roster players as you can for futures and picks
do not replace those players through free agency or trades
repeat for 3 years

win Stanley Cup in 2019

somebody please let me be the GM.

Im perfectly happy giving up whatever's necessary if the end result is Barkov and Ristolainen.... that would make last year's 2for look like child's play.
