Florida is going to need serious enticement to trade a prospect of this calibre. PK, a player who I would hate to see leave, provides that enticement.

If the trade is that unbalanced--and I'm no so sure it is--the draft choice can be down-graded to a 2nd rounder 2012...
Subban alone is worth that much, without adding Plekanec. He is a guy that has high upside(as much or more than Huberdeau) plus he's done a lot of the apprentiship, if we trade him now the team getting him gets a guy that should come out of this year a better player than he was last year(much like Price in 09-10).
