I don't know what the trade market will be for D men (or centers?) this summer, but if there is an upgrade to be made on the current roster and it can be done at the expense of a mid-range 1st (alone or in a package). Do it.
In the words of Dave, "Don't even ask. Just bring it."
To me, worst case scenario is to use the pick. That's not a bad downside, but frankly, I care more about what I'll see on ice next year than I do about another 18-19 year old that's 2, 3, 4 years away from contributing.
If its in the top 10, my thinking would change somewhat. Beyond the top 10 -- trade that sucker.
