I could see them trading the pick for established players--probably the only team of the six that would think about doing that.
If CBJ end up in the top 3, they aren't trading anything. They'll sit wherever they're at and pick Ovechkin, Malkin or Barker.
MacLean already has said they'll have no problems or concerns drafting Ovechkin or Malkin regardless of the Zherdev situation and IIHF situation.
