I voted nay. I still have hope Grebeshkov can develop, and think there will still be a great pick available at #11.

That's what I'm leaning toward as well. It was just an interesting idea.

I say no. First were thin as far as defenseman go. Two at 11 I think we can still get a quality center such as Kopitar or Zagrapan.

If we trade any prospects then it should be one of our wingers.

I know some people have been putting Grebs down for his defensive play in Manchester, but I was impressed with his play in the few games he played in the NHL. I don't think we should give up on him so quickly...

Man some people are quick to write off prospects at a young age (like comparing Grebeshkov to Modry ).
Not to make a comparison, but I'd like to site Gonchar as an example. Take a look at his numbers before becoming a full-time regular in the NHL.
http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...pid%5B%5D=1957
Same with Zubov, http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p....php3?pid=5872

Let's see what Grebeshkov could due over the course of an entire NHL season before we start judging his performance or thinking of getting rid of him. He hasn't reached 21 yet and he is only going to get better. As risky as his play may be, remember that guys like Ozolinsh and Gonchar and Zubov were accused of the same thing. I think it's fair to say that they have enjoyed successful and productive careers in the NHL. Once again, I'm not saying Grebeshkov will be as good as those guys, but he has the potential to reach that level (along with another Russian defenseman I am very fond of, Fedor Tyutin).
At this point, the one young Russian defenseman who I think will be a stellar player and should be representing his nation in big tournaments in the not so distant future will be Anton Volchenkov. He was at the top of my list amongst defenseman in the 2000 draft, and I believe he will prove to be better than the group of defensemen drafted ahead of him that year.

Just remember, it takes a bit longer for most defenseman to step up and become regular contributors at the pro level, and Grebeshkov is close to reaching that point.

I voted no as well. Grebs has his faults but its too early to give up on him.

We do this and get Johnson then people will be saying the same thing when he is 21 because he isn't "elite" and it will bring us right back to this type of trade and losing another 1st

Johnson is and probably always will be in a different class than Grebs.

I'd say yes, but only because I think Brule has a good chance to live up to his potential. Of course if the Kings pick was top 10 I'd definitly reconsider.

I say yes, Johnson or Brule could be franchise players. But if we could get Rask, I would say no.

I'm betting that one of either Rask or Price will be available when we pick.

trading Armstrong opens up a roster sot on a team loaded with centers

Who would you have playing center over Armstrong? Pirnes= 3rd line center. Belanger = 3rd line center. Avery=3rd/4th line center. Cammy seems like he's going to be switched to RW.
