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
Difference between Winchester and Moen is that stanley cup ring, like it or not, GMs look for that experience when they acquire players. Im not saying Moen is going to get us a first but I hes more valuable than Winchester
