Also on the "2 top 10 picks" imo once a pick is made where is was made means little, that is to say you can value a Hickey/Schenn as top5 picks forever you have to judge them on currently value. What that is right now is up for debate that is just my opinion.
I was referring to the earlier proposal that got the new debate going, not yours necessarily. Your scenario is a lot more likely although I don't think Schenn would be available.
Ottawa didn't get two Top 6 players though. It's a huge reach to call Cheechoo a Top 6 guy anymore. But I agree that is a comparable trade, although I think Spezza is worth more than Heatley.
Agreed but Schenn still easily has the value he did when he was drafted. If in 3 years he's still toiling in the AHL, then yes, his value isn't what it is now but not even close to reaching that level yet. Hickey isn't worth a #4 pick again but he's still got a lot of value.
