That's not going to get a Top-4 pick, probably not even a Top-10. If you're moving up to the Top-4 from 17-22 area, you'll need to give 2 1st and at least 1 2nd round pick. To get to the Top-10 from 17-22, it'll probably take a 1st, 2nd this year and a 2nd next year and a mid-level prospect.

Grachev, Bourque, Thomas are RWs, in an organization lacking RW depth at the NHL level, they're not going to deal prospects who are close towards the pros for a chance at a RW prospect. That being said, none of the Top-4 teams in the draft are going to pass up Landeskog, Nugent-Hopkins, Couturier, or Larsson.
