You're not giving up said players, but you're giving up a possibility of getting such players.

If you enter the draft with less picks, you're less likely to get good players out of that draft. That's pretty simple. If we're giving up a few more picks without getting any back until the 2011 draft, we could very well have nothing more than some fringe NHLers out of those 2 drafts. Not what's good for long-term success.
I'll just counter quickly we'll likely be getting a few assets for one of Hammer/ Spacek because there is no way we let Pleks walk for nothing, we need Cap space bad and Spacek/ Hammer are writing there tickets out of here right now because we can probably rely on subban making the jump next year. With Gill/Gorges/OByrne/Markov all locked up and Spacek/Hammer possibilities to go Subban could make the jump very easily and could start in a very limited role on the 3rd pairing if need be
