Despres is the only one that would interest an HF poster because he's a very hyped prospect and deservedly so, imo. That doesn't mean the others are nothing though. They can all help a team. I agree none of them will bring a 2nd, but I think all of them would bring a mid or late round pick.

Strait can absolutely play in the league. He was very solid again tonight for the Pens. He's one of those guys I wish we had a spot for because he impresses in almost every opportunity he gets. There's just no room. He's going to be a nice addition to someone's blue line next year though. Trust me on that.
