Tom Fitzgerald on moving a first-round pick: “If I was to move 18 or 20, it would have to be for someone we control, someone who can be a top-six forward or top-four defenseman, and someone that’s in that age bracket of where our group’s at. Anything else, I don’t know if it’s worth it. I don’t think it would be worth it because I’m staying true to this age bracket that keeps growing together.” [ ($)]
