    The effort is there, but you're right, the execution is horrible.

      Since the 2017 draft is considered somewhat weak....would anyone be opposed to trading out of the first in an attempt to secure that young scoring winger that we need?

        I wouldn't be opposed. The cap considerations would be the biggest hurdle.

        On the 2017 draft class, here are a few comments from Kyle Woodlief:

        Okay, we’re officially calling it: This is a bad draft year. Well, maybe bad is a tad harsh, but at best it’s unexciting.

        What else can you say when the two top prospects on your board — Nolan Patrick and Gabriel Vilardi— have rarely been healthy enough to play at full strength? Or when the presumed top three Euro phenoms — Swedish defenseman Tim Liljegren, Finnish winger Kristian Vesalainen, and Russian winger Klim Kostin — have seen their collective play range anywhere from mildly disappointing to downright underwhelming?

        Let’s just say Toronto and Edmonton picked the right years to be really bad and/or win the lottery. The clubs at the top of this year’s lottey will get some solid players — but not a so-called “franchise” player.

        And it gets worse, because not only is there not a lot of marquee value at the top end, in Red Line’s estimation, the depth of this year’s crop is lacking too. We look at the guys in the 30s, 40s, and 50s in our rankings and think that while they all have some traits we like, there are going to be a lot of second-round picks this year who will not go on to have stellar NHL careers.

              Just need to scrape it. Keep Simmonds but none of the rest of this F crew is going to be around when our young D matures so what is the point? Just get on with the rebuild.
