You may be underrating Witt...or overrating picks. Keep in mind, those would be picks late(r) in each round, given that they would be picks of playoff teams.
Let's not forget that Hal Gill, an inferior version of Brendan Witt, fetched a 2nd and a 5th at last year's deadline from the Pens during a deep draft.

You'd have to think that Witt can fetch more than Hal Gill.
