There seems to be a real appetite for wheeling and dealing as we enter into the draft with more picks than we have ever had in the history of this franchise. The conditional pick from the Campoli deal makes five picks in the top 60 in this draft. What we did with Rundblad, trading a pick for a "more "NHL-ready" prospect can be done again this year to acquire more scoring forwards for the rebuild. We can also add Chris Neil into the package for someone like Cody Hodgson (dream along...).
Nashville's pick is geting worse and worse as the Preds are on a tear since the arrival of MF. What could we get for that pick and a second rounder?
Here's my list of dream guys to chase after:
Maybe alot of these guys are untouchable and we have to find a more "under-the-radar" kind of guy who is underrated and will rise to the occasion like Rundblad who was only a 17th pick overall.
This year is where our scouting staff will get the ultimate test of how well we can find any hidden gems in this draft.
