Our first trade of the day is now in the books. The Ottawa Senators traded Robin Lehner and David Legwand's contract to the Buffalo Sabres for the 21st pick in the draft. The Sabres acquired the 23 year old to be their starting goaltender which, under most circumstances, is a reasonable asset to acquire for a first round pick.
The Dallas Stars first round pick is the 12th pick in the draft. It's a highly coveted asset, and probably the most highly coveted asset the Stars would be willing to move. They could use it to do any number of things to improve the current roster should they choose to do so.
So, here's a simple question. What would it take for you to be willing to move the first round pick today?
Would you move the pick for a big all around winger who could complement what the Stars already have going? How about a young starting goalie? Maybe even everyone's favorite target: a number one defenseman?
It isn't likely to happen, but you never know. The last time the Stars traded a first round pick was in the back to back 2007 and 2008 drafts, but they ended up with Jamie Benn anyway so I guess the moral of the story here is to trade all of your picks and get a Jamie Benn? Seems legit.
We'll see what happens, but what say you?
