Continue the Rebuild without Harming Our Present

Recommended Posts

Basing players available at the draft on this order (but not necessarily the drafting team order): http://www.draftsite.com/nhl/mock-draft/2015/

While we are notably better than last and our fortunes are looking up at the moment, we still have deficiencies in the pipeline - but I feel we can address these deficiencies without harming our present chances too much.

The plan: Trade up in the 1st and 2nd round and acquire another 1st. Assuming we pick 20th overall, this is how I play it.


To NYI: Chris Higgins, VAN 2015 2nd (50th overall)

To VAN: PHI 2015 2nd (39th overall)


Sign Matt O'Connor

To OTT: VAN 2015 1st (20th overall), Jakob Markstrom, Ben Hutton

To VAN: OTT 2015 1st (8th overall), Chris Wideman

To TOR: Jared McCann, Linden Vey (RFA)

To VAN: NSH 2015 1st (25th overall)

To DAL: Eddie Lack, Nicklas Jensen, NSH 2015 1st (25th overall)

To VAN: Curtis McKenzie, DAL 2015 1st (11th overall)

Sure as hell wouldn't trade him for what the OP is suggesting, that's for damn sure. Completely idiotic suggestion. Adding Vey makes my blood boil even more.

It seems like half the people on this board are obsessed with moving McCann for some reason. Seems like maybe a few people are still ever so slightly butthurt about the "It is what it is" comment from the draft. It's literally the ONLY reason I can think of that McCann is involved in half of the trade proposals I see these days.
