What kind of pick could we get in exchange for 2 or even all 3 of those picks?
Maybe one of the Rangers first rounders other than their own
Not worth it
Trade both first and 1 second for #1 overall and get Rasmus. Or both first and both second depending on where our lottery pick lands.
There are draft value charts (1 from 2011 & 1 from 2015) but I don't think they are very good to apply exactly, maybe just use as a guide. I think OTT may be looking to increase their amount of picks. I think we could move up 4-5 spots with our 27th & 36th picks.

Won't be enough.
Rasmus is a plug and play generational D by reputation. No team is trading that pick outside of receiving value that you literally cannot turn down. Just like McDavid. To have gotten that pick, Edmonton would have requested something like Crosby+, which of course is ridiculous.
If you at all feel comfortable about giving up the return you're offering for #1OA this year? It's not enough. The Red Wings literally do not have the pieces to land the #1OA even if they decided that they wanted to sell everything.
It remind me Lindros draft , when Colorado got equal player and + couple more solid players .
I mean, it's not exactly a comparable situation. Lindros refused to play for Quebec and sat out a year. So, you'd have to have Dahlin get drafted by Buffalo, refuse to play there, wait a year and on the eve of the next draft have the offer come down.
E: Also, the competing deals between New York and Philly for Lindros included 20M and 15M, respectively. You can't just send money with trades anymore.
So Lindros got
-Legit top 6 forwrad (Ricci, 100 pts for two years in a row just before trade)
-Blue Chip Prospect (Forsberg)
-Legit #2/3 D man (Duchense, 50-70 point D)
-A bottom pairing D-man (Huffman)`
-1st in 1993
-a pick in 1992 (couldn't find which one), this turned into a 1994 pick and Chris Simon
- 15M in cash.
That's an enormous ****ing package.
Also, don't know much O'Brien. Would like to know more.
1st: Nils Lundqvist
33: Mattias Samuelsson
36: Ty Dellandrea
I take McIsaac first if he's still on the board, and that might mean taking a different defenseman at 33.
No issue with taking any of those guys.
And I know his stock has dropped a tad as the season unfolded, but on a silly tangent, wouldn't it be awesome to see Woo on the back of a Wings jersey, and cheer for the guy by shouting, "Woo!"?
He was a PPG player first half of the season until he got hurt, IIRC. Numbers really dipped after he came back. Just something to note with him.
