In order to acquire Nugent Hopkins? Although I didn’t specify that the 1st round pick would be this year, yes I would. And I’m fine with being in the minority on that. Pacioretty will regress but he is one of the best goal scorers in the league. So you are fine with giving a guy you know is going to regress, an 8 year deal at 7 million+ (cause that's what he'll be looking for). Look at Andrew Ladd before and after his free agent contract.... thats what you are looking at with giving Pacioretty a big money long-term deal. I'll take the 18-year-old top 10 (and maybe top 5) pick on a cost-controlled salary. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
