Does take two to tango, but I agree it would be great to see him trade up.

Thank god we got Yakupov at 1. After him anybody could have really gone anywhere. LOL at CBJ taking Murray at 2 before all of these other D.

Good on Wild getting Dumba at 7. Not looking forward to playing against him forever.

It's like Christmas for Calgary with the forwards that they'll get to pick from.

Can't see Buffalo leaving both Forsberg and Grigorenko on the board. They really need big forwards.

No way we move Gags for a 11-15th draft pick way over payment now, top 10 pick maybe

I'd love for Tambo to trade up right now but it never happens.

He always 'tries' but not hard enough and he couldn't make up his mind in 5 minutes anyway. He has to go through friggin Lowe and the owner.

Once other teams saw the Oil take Yak, they got scared and said (in unison) "we need some D to stop those guys' yeah, that's it

Depends on who is available at that spot. If Grigorenko is there at #13 I'd trade Gagner to Dallas for that pick without batting an eye.

Not if you can get Forsberg or Grigorenko.

I dunno about anyone else, but I'd be ok trading up for Faksa if the price is right.

They like their Russians but they have Backstrom, Ribeiro and Johansson at centre.

My money is on Forsberg.

Washington will probably pick Grigorenko. They have a hard-on for Russians

Who do you offer that another team will be interested in enough to make the deal? We don't exactly have elite players who are available. Why get ripped off just for the sake of making a trade? That makes no sense.

I would not move MPS now either, he still has an extreme high ceiling in my mind.
