Once again, that's not how things work. The fact that the Islanders traded up from 26 to 16 has no bearing on the 16 to 12 trade other than the fact those picks in the former are no longer available in the latter. It's two separate entities. But (hypothetically) if the Wild were going to do take out the middle man like you suggested, I would want more for moving down 14 spots than what Columbus got. That's not enough to give away your highest asset.
