I think that to move up in the draft for John, it would be 1st 09, 2nd 09, Prospect, and top 6 forward or top pairing Dman.


Obviously Eric Lindros was before your time?

Yes, what I remember is the worst trade in history. I hope Tavares isn't a Lindros.

This paragraph wouldn't look out of place in discussing Rob Schremp a couple of years ago. Tavares is far from a sure thing like a Crosby or Ovechkin.

I don't think any team should give up what it would take to get the first overall pick, even for someone like Tavares. Anyone remember Alexandre Daigle?

The Pens offer was a little generous, considering both players are Finals proven, Staal's only about two years older than Tavares and has a nice upside himself, and Whitney's only 25 and locked in at a very good price for the next 5 years (not to mention only a year removed from a 59 point year, and last season put up 40 points on a bum leg).

Giving up those two and the next 3 1sts+ is excessive, but I'd think an offer of Staal (contingent on at least a 25+ goal, 50+ point season this year), Whitney (contingent on a return to '06-'07 form), an '09 first, and Alex Grant or Carl Sneep could be an appealing package.
