Why even trade for the 1st overall then? Why not trade directly with the Trashers for the second overall?

Everything I have read leads me to believe MacLean was falling head over heels for Rick Nash and rated him the top priority that year. It might be just talk, but it really seems like he was the #1 guy for the BJs.
