      You're underselling and taking losses on every trade. Big no thank you. We are not going into another full rebuild. Just reworking everything.

      Robert E Lee won nearly every battle with which he was involved, the south lost the war. The North Vietnamese lost every engagement they had with the US troops they won the war. What is more important to win the battle or win the war. So what if you lost every trade, you won the war. This draft is loaded, my son told me he read an article that there may be as many as 5 #1 defense-men in this draft. we then counted how many true #1 D-men there were in the NHL now, we got to about 12 (Hedman, Burns, Karlsson, Carlson, Letang, Subban, Weber, Doughty, Byfuglien, Klingberg and Gostisbehere, and I added Krug). TEN 1st round picks this year means you won the war. I have noticed on other posts you have made you make really good trades.

      Five Stars my friend, you have very insightful comments and I presume you are a Sharks fan.
