    Haha, I'm so torn on this, but Artemi would be HUGE to add in the offseason...if we're...competing to win, that is.

    If we are lucky enough to draft Hughes, then you have to go for it. Panarin - Hughes - Kravtsov is a killer scoring line. You have to get Panarin if he becomes available. Next year Hajek and Rykov improve the D. Then in Panarin's second year here you hope Miller and/or Lundkvist can step in and boost the D even more.

    All up to the lottery...

    2012 - Edmonton moved from 2 to 1 to draft Yakupov
    2013 - Colorado moved from 2 to 1 to draft MacKinnon
    2014 - Florida moved from 2 to 1 to draft Ekblad
    2015 - Edmonton moved from 3 to 1 to draft McDavid
    2016 - Toronto stayed at 1 for Matthews
    2017 - Devils moved from 5 to 1 to draft Hischier
    2018 - Buffalo stayed a 1 for Dahlin


    Noting is a sure bet. Anything can happen.

    Yeah and some of that data is when the odds were weighted more heavily to the very bottom teams. Now even the worst team only has less than 20% chance at Hughes. And Detroit is going to be hard to catch, they are keeping kids in the A and have no offense at all.

    I say we avoid all very high-priced UFA except if he meets these conditions:

    1. Not older than 27, low miles, no injuries. Especially if 7 year contract
    2. Perfect fit, fills positional and skill need.
    3. Must be excellent skater and likes to play fast.
    4. Dynamic impact player
    5. Wants to be here, won't try to extract every last nickel or drum-up a bidding war.

    I think Panarin is the rare UFA that meets all 5 criteria. As of now, I say we aggressively explore signing him whether we get Hughes or not. This draft already has at least 5 kids who look like very high-end prospects and a very deep first round overall.
