    Is there a way realistically that Washington can trade its second round picks and its late first round pick to acquire another top ten pick? That means we could get any two of Voracek, Alzner, Esposito, Gagner etc. I think that would pretty much guarantee a bright future for Washington, even if we're not able to ink any UFAs.

    Thoughts?

    They probably can't trade up quite that high without including more than picks. Perhaps Anaheim, since they're looking to deal the pick they acquired from Tampa Bay, would deal the 16th pick for the 28th & 34th? Depending on who falls, they'd still be able to get a quality prospect at 16.

    in a draft like this where the players are all over the place, basically outside of the top 10, i dont think it would be wise to trade essentially two first round picks to move up 10ish spots.. you could probably get one of the guys you want with your late first pick and then a bonus player in the early 2nd
