Oilers ask for Johanson+ 2nd overall.
Oilers ask for Subban + 3rd overall.Habs pass,offer Gorges + 3rd overall.
Oilers ask for Harmonic + 4th over.NYI pass,offer De Haan + 4th overall.
Oilers ask for Gardiner +5th overall.Burkes pushes Schenn + 5th overal.
Again, look at the 2003 draft, which is the most recent case in which the 1st was moved. The packages you suggest are massively out of line with that precedent--which was basically the 1st, a 2nd, and a B-level prospect to move up two spots.

Each draft is different, and the value of the 1st overall is hard to generalize, but none of the packages you suggest really fits except, maybe, the NYI.
