Well, I , I feel very good about this draft, but I, I think, potentially you know were gonna have 3 or 4 NHL players out of this group, ummmm, you know like we are not going to prejudice to were they are from.

Move on, Michael D. Gillis. Keep your president job and find a GM if Laurence doesn't want to become a NHL GM yet.

Kesler, as good as he is, he might need to be traded for someone younger with more skill as his trade value will start to decrease in a couple years. Try to trade (if they agree to waive) Edler, Kesler, maybe Burrows if he can't produce like he used too (14.5 mill!!), rebuild your entire second line, get a legit winger for the Sedins if possible. Thats what I would do.

Do you have any faith that a trade Gillis makes won't simply make the team even worse?
Man, if MG just made a few god damn trades already and filled a couple holes he wouldn't be half bad, but he has married this core to this franchise and himself. Its clear that a few of these players have been here too long and want a change of scenery. MG was brought in because AQ thought Nonis was too attached to Nazzy etc, now he is the one who is too attached to his players, the irony.

^ agreed on that point, would love to see someone come in from the penguins, wings, or blackhawks organization !
Not many left from Chicago. Cheveldayoff in Winnipeg, Bergevin in MTL, they're the one that we're there in the development years of the young blackhawks.
There is a young up and coming GM in Tampa. Assistant to Yzerman in Tampa is Julien Brisebois, previously GM of the Habs farm team. He 37 years old, apparently really good with numbers (cap stuff), was there in Hamilton when guys like Price, Halak, PAcioretty and Subban went through the farm.
