Too much quantity, not enough high-end quality imo. Honestly if Zegras and Drysdale are both off the table, then Anaheim won't nab an elite #1 C like Eichel. There will be teams offering their best prospect(s) for him so those teams would win the bid

I think if Zegras or Drysdale are not included then the next best few pieces need to be. Ex: Comtois, #3, etc.

Definitely. If they can package 3-4 really attractive pieces that aren't elite level pieces then there is still a deal to be made. Comtois, Dostal, Lundestrom, Terry, Steel etc etc there is a lot to choose from

True, but the teams that are going to include their best prospect don't have high-value draft picks. Matt Boldy or Cody Glass are better than any prospect Anaheim is going to part with, but the third overall selection in this year's draft trumps that. And as long as we can have top-5 protection on our 2022 pick, that choice is likely to be better than any team's competing pick.

We'd have to include Adam Henrique to make the money work, and this adds to the value of the package. And Buffalo probably wants a roster player to at least fill a center slot, anyway.

Comtois
Terry
3OA

Should do the trick I would think, especially if Buffalo is hot for Eklund like they say. Could nab Power at 1 and still be able to get Eklund.

If no Zegras and Drysdale, then it would be 3oa, Comtois, Lundestrom, plus another piece or two.

?????

I was responding to the general statement that a team that offers the best prospect will automatically offer the best package. Once you get past Boldy or Rossi, Glass or Krebs, Turcotte or Vilardi, only Los Angeles has a draft pick that remotely resembles Anaheim's 2021 first in value. And "remotely" is the key word. And look at the secondary pieces those teams are offering: Rask and/or Greenway (Dumba is out now that the Wild no longer have to protect Suter), Smith, Anderson-Dolan or Clague or similar prospect, etc.

And the next time I make a mistake like that, it will be my very first.

Very first this week, ha, ha.

Perhaps you should then stop offering little to nothing for our best player? We aren’t taking you #5 & #6 prospects and some fluff for Eichel. You want to protect Zegras and Drysdale, then you will be gutted in another manner but gutted you will be regardless.
