Interesting times indeed my friend. I suppose there are many roads that lead to Rome. My personal thoughts would have been to wait until next year for any trade over a mitt full of thirds (ok, maybe even one second) - but that is my hockey operations brain thinking, not my business brain. Team ownership has to be concerned with both.

So... if I was GM and I was handed that sandwich in June, that would be how I would resolve it: draft high and hope for a no-show, draft high and trade him at the deadline, draft talent and coach/market the hell out of him so he has takers at the deadline.

Those picks can't be moved for a year if I remember correctly but it would allow them to empty the cupboards and not be decimated. It's a no brainer to do this next year IMO.

Still a few "ifs" in there, more risky than having the picks in the bank already but has potential. This puts a tonne of pressure on the scouting staff to either identify that superstar or find a diamond in the rough that can be whipped into shape and gain attention in the first three months. That means the first rounder has to play and catch some limelight, early on.

If you wait until January the compensation pick is gone. Way better return flipping the pick right away before he plays. With a full roster returning it gives you an out to at least make it look on the up and up with the league.

Take a 'swing for the fences' pick.

If he reports... Awesome. If not... Your plan sounds good to me.

Think it’s easier to do to draft a ‘non-reporter’.

Imagine that they traded a boat load of picks to London... who seems to have a history with getting no reporters to ‘change’ their minds ...

Lol
