08 4th round pick
Extra 2009 1st round pick
That is great for now, and in the future. We completely add to our offense making it one of the best in the league, Having 3 all star veterans who can be takng important face offs, and be a clutch leader, and another in his prime, can show of to Wellwood, Steen, Pohl and practictly the rest of the offense. Keep our penalty killer Peca and Kilger to do their stuff on ther penalty kill. Bring up Stralman and sign a defensive Defense, while still having Colaiacovo, Kaberle and White and maybe Stralman to still produce offense, and get a pretty good back veteran back up who can teach Raycroft, have 3 extra 1st round picks (2 of which in the top 6) which we can get players like Gagner or other players with the skill level like him and still have atleast 1 million $ left to spend.
