I was just looking at the 2010 and 2011 deadline deals ; here's a sample :

Bélanger for a 2nd
Halpern for Purcell and a 3rd
Torres for Paestch and a 3rd
Arnott for Steckel and a 2nd
Higgins for E Oberg and a 3rd
B Winchester for a 3rd
Chris Kelly for a 2nd
Penner (not a rental though) for Teubert, 2011 1st and 2012 3rd (still, what a deal !!)
Kaberle for Colbourne and a 1st

1st rounds picks just don't get traded for rental utility type forwards. They go for scorers or important d-men

Last year, Brad Winchester a physical player who already had 9 goals got traded for a 3rd at the deadline. Moen is worth more than him I'm sure, but not that much that he warrants a 1st rounder.

If people really get into the bidding, maybe we extract a lower pick or a prospect to go along with the 2nd rounder which would be excellent value. 1st pick is a mirage IMHO
