Even if we manage to trade up and get Tarasenko or Kuznetsov, or if they roll the dice on Kabanov at #40 and he pans out perfectly, this is still a disaster because we could have had two of those guys, or one of them and Fowler or Gormley. This makes no sense at all. There better be something to this kid that none of us see, but I have zero faith in that being the case.
You guys are bi-polar. Clark makes the selections. Go listen to his interview with Jim Cerny. Sather lets Clark do whatever he wants. Sather doesn't pick the draft picks. Clark wanted the player and he selected the player. Clark we trust. Clark we trust. Now he's an idiot.
Wait, even better... did we pass on trade proposals involving the #10? Because if we could have gotten a good package for Girardi + #10, or something similar... throw in Dubinsky/Sangs depending on the return, and we were unwilling to trade the #10 so that we could PASS on Fowler and Gormley and take McIlrath...? Just amazing.
