Gillis has already made it clear that he is more interested in adding depth and there's no way he'll trade away that many assets just to get one in return even though he might be a superstar down the line.

IMO Gillis is more interested in moving down and not up in the draft. I look for him to trade to add a couple of 2nd round picks. The depth in this organization is real weak as is and I highly doubt he'll be willing to move that much just to add one asset.
I disagree. I think the allure of drafting a player with the potential to be a superstar in this league would be enough that Gillis would pull the trigger. Tavares could step onto our team next year and center the second line (assuming Hodgson centers the third), thus giving us some cap flexibility to sign top wingers to play on his line.

A team with Tavares and Hodgson down the middle will be set with two very strong scoring lines for years to come.
