Granted, we got him in trade for a UFA, but now that we have him it would be nice to keep him

Still, I can see Umberger being the main piece of a trade for the right to pick Ovechkin. If the deal were, say, Umberger, Poti (+ salary paid & cash), 2 2nd rounders, would you do it?

There's no way that Pittsburgh would trade the first overall pick without getting our first rounder as part of the deal.
