Why would we bother traded for their pick? Even if we got Ovechkin Hitch would just turn him into a defensive minded mucking forward. The transition would take him 2 or 3 years, and along the way he will be scratched, played on the 4th line, experience periods where Hitch praises him one day and then scratches him the next.
Nah! I'd rather just keep Gagne at this point than get frustrated watching a talent like Ovechkin get transformed into a 3rd line checking center.
