There is just no way a draft pick, even a #1 overall can make up the difference (unless there's a Crosby/Ovechkin type talent available, in which case the Devils obviously would never make the trade)
While the Devils may have to add slightly. I do not believe a deal around Malkin and Parise/First is completely out there. Parise's numbers would skyrocket being on Crosby's line and Staal's would improve on the second line. That first could be used to draft another winger for Staal or further bolster the defense. There is definitely potential to this trade.
