    Your trades are interesting. And actually pretty fare. A 1st to eat okposos contract is a lot. Dont Think you have the right team though. Arizona is kinda trying to do the right thing. Can see Ottawa doing it, to make the minimum though.

    Obviously overlooked it. I can see Bryam somehow dropping to 5. Hawks are kinda ok at depth with LDs, Colorado could take Dach, have an awesome 1C 2C tandem in a couple years.
    Weirder things have happened so anything's possible. Would mean giving up less too.

    I think if Byram gets to LAK @ 5 they take him for sure.. but you're right anything could happen. To me getting Byram would be the best case scenario for Buffalo in the 1st round

    Then does that mean Dahlin eventually moves to RD?
    Realistically I can see buffalo taking Caufield. Him and Eichel would be a good combo (looking past the defensive problems)
