Still would have been hard to find a trading partner. Anaheim had Fowler ranked #3 on their board, so I doubt they would have been willing to trade out of #12. To get Fowler, you would have had to trade in front of Anaheim. I'm not sure any of those teams would have been interested in dropping 15+ spots.

The only scenario I could have seen is if you had insisted on St. Louis' first rounder (14th overall) instead of Lars Eller for Halak. And then you could have hypothetically tried to trade up to #10 with the Rangers if you could have convinced them McIlrath would still be there at #14.
