My point was to show you that we should either use the pick at the draft or trade it for a proven player. My point was meant for THIS season. It goes to our needs, not to what's available at the draft.
Your point regarding drafting the best player, rather than on needs nullifies your entire proposal, in that you're clearly striving to draft a particular player by moving up 2 spots. Why else would you do this deal if this is not the case? I'm guessing you want Duchene? Again, that's not necessarily the best option.
I'm confident DL will be focused on addressing needs in the off-season.
