I', not saying I think he's against moving the 5th cause I believe that can be had but I think if the 5th gets moved it's for a Jordan staal type or a Ryan Getzlaf type IF the ducks were dumb enough to move him which they aren''t.
Lupul-Thornton-Kessel would definitely challenge for the best line in the league. And since Grabovski would be taking the hard minutes, I'd confidently say that Joe could hit 90 points again.

But as for the pick, you aren't going to get a young #1C in his prime for that pick. Your best bet is to get a Thornton type that many would overlook due to his age and reputation, but who is actually a good fit and has plenty of years left in him.
