Just listening to Burke on the Bill Watters show and he went off about possible moves at the draft. Burke went on to say that it was "probable" the Maple Leafs could move up into the top 10 by moving the two 1st rounders and our own 2nd.
He also said that it would really depend on the results of the draft lottery and which teams held which picks.
I thought it was interesting that he brought that up.
Question is... would you move three picks between 20th and 40th for a top 10 pick?
if u could get into the top 12ish yes, but anything else no. My understanding is that this draft is a bit of a wash after the top 10-12.
I agree. I think if a player slides from the top 5 and they want him really bad, it's okay to make that deal. But if it's just to move up into the top 10 and wait to see who is available, I think I'd keep the picks.
Really like the idea of three picks between 20 and 40th.
I really hope Burke does everything he can to draft Gabriel Landeskog. Game like Forsberg, Alfredsson, and he is the Swedish Jarome Iginla...
Captain material, works hard every night, fights, Burke-Type player, size to play on Kessel's wing, skill, scoring, amazing player.
