For instance. If say the Ducks feel they can get their guy at 3rd and not 6th. I'd trade down(again based on Timmins list) and get another 2nd or so in process(36th overall).

After, if a team like washington was interested in the 6th, I'd trade it for their 11th and 16th.

The result would leave us with in top 2 rounds:

11th
16th
33rd
36th
53rd

We'd originally have:

3rd
33rd
53rd


I don't expect this to happen but I'm just making up a fantasy scenario where I may be able to live with the change.

SOrry but I'm not trading #3 for #11 and #16. The talent drop off is huge after top 8. I would however trade both our second round picks for a #16-#20 overall pick. I would take Grigorenko with #3, and Olli Maatta with ~#20.

Maatta 6'3" 200lbs. defenseman. shoots left. comparable to Ryan Suter.

Grigorenko 6'3" 210lbs. center. shoots left. comparable to Jason Spezza.

Grig is just too talented to pass up.
