I'm doing alright after all of that. I think I'll grow to love Carlsson, but the idea of handing Fantilli over to Columbus just sucks.
So. Much. Upside.
With the rest of the picks? I thought adding Gauthier at RW would have been big, but at the end of the day, Martin Madden has run the draft for the past few years, and has pulled this stuff off many times before, and it's resulted in guys like Luneau/Zellweger/Warren/Pastujov/etc. being added. Heck, Soap and Minty were both considered "reaches" when they were picked, and both have shown that they were worthy of those picks.
Re: the lack of upgrades to the actual roster so far-Who do we want? Gotta think age-wise any major additions that aren't on expiring deals would have to be 26 or younger given the teams timeline? Just off the top of my head, would we have been happy giving up Mintyukov for Dach (I wouldn't have been...), or Mintyukov+Luneau/Warren+3rd for Debrincat (I would have been at the time, but not now...), or 33OA+Luneau for Newhook? I just don't see it. Let the kids stew for a bit, and see what we've got. THEN you deal from the pick/prospect pool.
I honestly think Verbeek put a high price tag on cap dump acquisitions, and it's backfired (a bit). That being said, I think that there should be a premium put on freeing up cap space, and once it starts to flow, teams *might* bite.

Given that my desire for Fantilli fell through, I have no idea. Cristall would be my number 1, but I agree with everyone that a true RW probably makes more sense at this point. Don't take a friggin' goalie at 33OA though, for the love of god.
Edit: I wouldn't be opposed to Dragicevic though. RD pipeline looks like Drysdale-Luneau-Helleson right now, but I have zero problem adding another (and then go trade for Debrincat, you cowards!)
