Think about it this way. For a second, let's just say we pull a deal to trade O'Donnell for a second rounder. Presumably this team wanting O'Donnell is going to be a playoff team, likely a very good team adding the pieces to get them over the top. So that pick is likely to be in the 50-60 range. Now assuming like you are thinking, we firesale trade Frolov, O'Donnell, etc our already very slim playoff hopes go out the window and we tank the end of the year, falling probably to around 5-10 worst in the league. Now as a part of the Anaheim deal we are going to be giving up a 3rd rounder, i presume it ours, so well be giving up a 65-70 spot pick. So at VERY best wed be up 15 spots, might be moving up only around 5 spots in the draft. In the late 2nd/early 3rd. Not worth anything in the long run.
