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
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.
