Are picks 20 - 30 worth less this year?

    I have read that this draft really thins compared to previous years around pick 15 or so. If I read right beyond that you could throw the picks after that into a hat and pick them as there is a tier lasting from about there through the second round. If that is correct, these picks would still want first round money, so maybe would be worth even less. Would that effect offers to move up as well, say you are LA at 11, would you want a couple of first rounders after #20 for that pick or more because of the percieved drop?

    Thoughts?

    Kings should keep the 11th spot...trading down out of the top 20 would be a very bad bad idea.

    The draft this year doesn't hold a candle to last year's draft depth.

    just take Schwarz and get over with it already!

    I started this thread and I am as far from LA as you can get, I am a Pen's fan, and absent a right arm type offer we are taking Malkin, you can bet on that. The LA example was just that, an example. This is a question that has no concern to me other than as a fan of the game as we are not picking after pick 20.

    There are some good folks in the 20-30 range, but chances are that it'll be hit-and-miss in that area. Someone will take a chance and hit a homerun, and someone else will strike out. Another will lay down a sacrifice bunt and put the winning run on 2nd. It all depends on what a team decides to do in that area.

    My goodness. Me with baseball analogies. What's this world coming to?
