At 7 (despite his injury) Cowen would be best player available, and it would seem they've more or less addressed their D in the last few drafts (Doughty, Hickey, Teubert) as well as having Greene locked up, and JMFJ and Quincey to lock up in the off-season.

Therefore, if they were willing to move the pick, I'd do:

To EDM: 7th overall, Boyle

To LA: (hopefully) 15th pick, Cogliano

Boyle's a bit of an unknown at this point, but with that size I'd take the gamble. Cogliano seems to be able to produce at a decent clip (right around the 20 goal mark) despite getting minimal PP time and playing with checkers/pluggers all the time. I question his hockey sense at times, but his speed is world class.
Kings wouldn't do it. Cogliano is good, but the Kings do not like their top 6 forwards small. Williams is small but his intangables make up for it.
