Let me try to rephrase the question: We got Umberger with the 19th pick so what defenseman might we get with a mid first round pick, and if we have to package it with a player, then fine. But tell me, what or who might we fetch in a trade. I want a name or two.
If we sent the first round pick alone, I think the stage has been pretty much set - we could attain a Versteeg type of player, IMO. If we packaged the first rounder with say Nikita Filatov, the return could be much higher depending on who is shopping what for what. I would love to see us come away with a top-pairing defenseman if we're sending that pick away - even if it includes us sending away Filatov with it.
