I wouldn't give up all that to move up to #4. Higgins is a solid player and I could guesstimate that it would be basically 50/50 odds whether Kane or Schenn or MPS or whoever you're taking with the #4 pick ever become substantially better than him. We'll also probably get a decent chance at another Higgins-esque calibre player at #18. Halak, O'Byrne, and Fischer are probably not greatly valued by other organizations, but they do still have some value to us as well.

I would pass on the trade, and pass on the idea of moving up in the draft in general. Our team isn't good enough yet and our depth and young players haven't established their value to other teams firmly enough yet that we would be in a position to make such a deal, even if we wanted to.
