They will with Ovechkin.
We aren't talking about a Comrie for Ovechkin trade. It'd be Comrie for the pick upgrade + other stuff that has been mentioned. We are not at all over-rating Comrie as he has scored the second most of any player his age (behind Havlat). Comrie, Lynch, Chimera for a pick upgrade would REALLY get the attention of the team with the first overall pick.
