What If? Draft 2011

Larsson has gone first overall. Landeskog just went second overall and the Avs are sitting with the third pick for the 2011 draft. The next players projected to possibly be picked are RNH, Couturier, and Strome. 3 centers. 3 possibly wingers. The Avs already have Duchene, Stastny, OReilly, and possibly Hishon to center the top 3 lines. What do you do? Who do you draft?

 

Do you pick one of the centers?

 

Do you trade down and acquire an asset and draft one of the other top 8 players?

 

Do you move one of your current centers to bring back pieces you need?

 

What would you do?

 

Tampa was in a similar situation in 09 where they had Stamkos & Lecavalier and drafted Hedman. What if they had traded Lecavalier and his huge salary for help on defense and took Duchene? A Stamkos/Duchene combo with whatever the Lecavalier to Montreal brought back (Halak? top 4 D? Pick? Prospect?). Something to think about when it comes to this draft and it being so top heavy in centers (who could possibly adjust to wing).
