Sorry to say, from your end, that no, Vancouver's 1st round pick was not dealt. Nor was our 2nd round pick. In order for San Jose to get a 2nd round pick out of this they would have to make a bona fide contract offer to Patrick White, and for him to reject and the team to end up losing his rights to free agency upon the conclusion of his NCAA career.
I am absolutely stunned that a trade like this happened, to be honest. I thought Ehrhoff would cost at least something like Raymond and a 1st round pick, and that as part of a salary dump. But I guess if you guys get Heatley for Cheechoo and say, White (Ottawa was rumoured to have interest in White at the 07 draft) then it wouldn't be so bad on your end.
