<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Tjm220</b></div><div>Realistically a top 10 draft pick should be enough to trade for almost anyone. There are maybe 2 to 3 players on each team that one top 10 draft pick is not enough straight up. Sure, whoever gets drafted in that spot is at least a year away from the NHL. But he is expected to be a top line forward, top pairing defenseman, or #1 goalie in the future. Busts happen, but in a draft This deep you’re getting a very good player there.</div></div>
That's what people say every year, because they over rate the prospects chances. Then we watch teams draft guys like Bennett, Dal Colle, Vrtanen, Fleury, Ritchie, A Nylander, Ristolainen, Nichushkin, Morin and on and on and on......
Like I said, the chances of getting a player as good as Monahan at 8th overall in this draft are sketchy at best. Needs to be more added when you're trading a sure thing vs. a maybe.
