1st rounder 2011
Lars Eller
Mike Cammalleri

or whatever.
Any1 of those is worth quite more than that actually. Again, you don't trade for super-star talent without giving up super-star talent yourself, and the only thing we have close to it is Price and Subban, and since the goalie market is not that great you would have to give up Subban.

Something like 1st + Subban + Eller/Pacioretty + Plekanec/Cammalleri might land you one, but only in cases where the team HAS to get rid of him because he asked out or something. If they can afford to be greedy, we simply couldn't. You have to draft these kind of players, not trade for them, only time where trades happen is because the team just cannot resign them or have to trade them for whatever reason.
