But those kind of offers could be made and they would also be behind the same closed doors. Does that make sense?

We turn them down without even thinking about it. It would take a lot for Nashville to trade Crosby, in my opinion. And two second round picks are nice in order to move down in the draft only 3 spots. But those two seconds are very late in the second round and certainly don't make up the difference between Crosby and the prospect to be had at #4.
