Draft picks are so over-valued when it comes to young players. If your trading a veteran on the decline with a big contract and he looks easily replaceable than they are worth a look.
But trading Schenn, Kulemin and Grabovski is a step backwards, especially in this draft which isn't very deep by most observers. My bet is the Leafs will be selecting somewhere in the 10-15 position. You might get a good player there but if you move the others you will most likely draft at a lower position, odds are you may get a project player who won't fill the void the player before him will be traded for.
So to answer your question, no I don't think so. Of all the names mentioned only MacArthur am I comfortable with moving, and Schenn to a lesser degree.
