"In my mind, the most important point in having two second round picks is the ability to move up in the draft....If you find that there is a player you really like, and it could be a late first-round pick, you can trade those two picks and move up to possibly acquire a first-round pick."

St. Louis Named Lady Byng Finalist

The question that always comes to mind when thinking of the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy is this - is it a compliment or an insult for a hockey player to be nominated and/or win this award?
