Would 2nd overall (Grigorenko) plus 3rd rounder for 10th (Ceci/Rielly/Faksa) + 23rd (Bystrom? Maatta? Pouliot?) make sense? What about Tampa @ 9th (Ceci/Rielly/Faksa) and Detroit's pick (probably 18-20) for 2nd overall + WSH 2nd?

We could possibly pick up Rielly + Koekkoek and completely overhaul our defensive depth.
Yeah, it really depends on how large you feel the gap between Murray/Dumba and the next "tier" of defenseman is. The forward gap seems to be much bigger. It all depends on what a team is willing to pay for that pick; if you get a Godfather offer, you have to seriously consider it.
