I would definitely do that trade.

Also if teams want prospects.... the extra picks give you the flexibility to move a prospect without it hurting as much.

So no matter what, its win/win to load up on picks.

Heck even if you don't trade them, youve given Timmins more chances to find you a gem.

I prefer the centre in theory if its say Forsberg vs Galchenyuk; but Yakupov to me is head and shoulders ahead of Grigorenko so I'd take him.

Ive got this draft ranked in tiers like so

1) Yakupov

2) Grigorenko

3-7) Galchenyuk, Forsberg, Dumba, Trouba, Murray (all close depends on team picking)

8-12 or 13 with Reilly, Reinhart, Faksa, Gaunce, Girgensens, etc...
I agree with your rankings of the players and after Galchenyuk I think it is pretty much a crap shoot.

If we get into the lottery I hope Gauthier makes a push for #1, I would be sad if we moved someone like Gallagher but Yakupov is perfect.
