Well the kids aint winning a Cup and one day they all need to be payed and we have seen this in ED and now the Leafs.

As much as i believe in draft n develop in this case i may look at making trades. Bring in a solid leader on O and another on the D to help bring in the new.

If you have several players clearing 10M a year, yeah it's a problem. That won't necessarily be the case, since the draft is a gamble. They might get a top 3 pick who turns out to be decent but not elite and so makes ~5M a year. You might get some gems further down who take 5 years but become stars. Who knows.

The media calling it a "problem" to have lots of picks is silly. They are assets that can be traded if Ottawa wants some help right away, so them having the power to do that will be a big help to digging them out of the basement.
