It was for the 2nd pick (plus later pick).

As for an example of 2nd overall's value: 4th overall + 2x 3rd rounders is approximately what the Canucks paid. Extrapolating values downward a late top 10 + 2nd half of 1st round pick would be approximately equivalent.

If Tampa does that, they take a huge step towards replacing an aging St. Louis or Lecavlier. It would also be a big statement move for Washington's new GM (because let's be honest, GMGM isn't going to keep his job if they miss the playoffs) that makes his mark on the franchise immediately.
