Thread: I wonder
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>jonh514</b></div><div>I would never trade the 4OA in this draft cause I like Smith a lot.

I cannot imagine this humble team with Michkov on it cherry picking up ice waiting for a pass. I heard Arpon Basu describe him as akin to Jonathan Drouin (with more talent, but the same lack of commitment to defence). I really don't want to go down this road again.

Reinbacher, Leonard, Dvorsky... How is Hart and Tippet not better than one of those guys?</div></div>

There's ways to acquire 1 or both of those guys without moving 5OA. Reinbacher fills a gaping organizational hole on RD, Leonard idk haven't spent very many moons evaluating him but he seems like a potent goal scorer, and Dvorsky should be picked in the 8-12 range imo (not top 5). Hart would be wonderful but might also crush the progress Monty has made. I don't know that Monty is the guy either but we already have him so let's ride one more season, maybe we trade for Hart's signing rights next year instead via PHI or wherever else he may end up.

The value would definitely favour MTL but I would want both for 5OA (plus maybe a little bit) to potentially solve two of our issues instead of just the one issue 5OA is potentially going to solve for us (Top Pair RD/Top Line RW/Top 6C/Franchise or at least Top End Goaltender). I really don't want to move that pick unless we get <em>at least</em> two mid 1sts in value for it, that pick is a potential superstar. That being said, I do not want to draft Michkov. There are plenty of potential superstars in this draft, I believe we are all but guarantied to select one.
