I wouldn't.

That has as much potential to backfire with fans as it does to please them. If we don't trade and Huberdeau ends up the better player, no one regrets a player you didn't trade for, its just one of innumerable could-haves and no one ever knows if Florida would have done it. But if we do it, and Grigs end up the better player the fans will hate the move.

And I would think Florida would prefer to stick with their prospect as well. They don't even know where we are drafting...so for them it would be Huberdeau for ??????
