I wonder what's going to happen with the Rule 5 draft this year. I think Duquette and Buck would be able to find a useful piece, but I highly doubt there is room to keep that player on the roster all year.

For me the key question is : which prospect do I not protect to take the 24th best Rule 5 choice?

That's true too. I honestly forgot we'd be picking so late this year. So used to picking early. Maybe they would not be able to find a decent guy anyway.

It's been a LOOONNNGGG time since we've had that kind of problem. Feels kinda good.
