Look at the deals made near or during draft day in recent years.

In 2008, Cammalleri was traded for a first round pick, the 17th pick overall. He had one year remaining on his contract, with a #3.4 million cap hit, and was two seasons removed from putting up an 80 point season. Last year, Jay Bouwmeester's negotiating rights were traded for a 3rd and Jordan Leopold.

Sharp, Buff, and Versteeg haven't come close to having an 80 point campaign yet in their career, and their contracts are inflated. A mid-to-late first would be more than enough for Sharp. Byfuglien has yet to score 40 points in a season and has a $3 million cap hit... a 2nd plus a decent prospect is far too much for him. Versteeg for a 2nd and a prospect may be fair based on his potential, but I think his cap hit may affect his trade value.
