One thing to keep in mind with all the trade banter and team discussions is that most of the significant trades are likely to be made prior to the draft. Obviously there will be some made between the draft and July 1st and there's always a surprise after major UFA season ends when the dust settles.

My point would be if a team is going to gamble on a player like Parise coming to them but they have interest in Nash they have a choice to make. Sacrifice pieces and get something you think you need or want or gamble and hope you sign Parise. The same is true for Luongo to a degree. He's (or Schneider I suppose) likely to be moved prior to or during the draft. It's a tough decision that GM's have to make. If you really have that hole on your team to fill most prefer to fill it via trade unless you are a cap team with an open checkbook to recover from mistakes in free agency (ie. Rangers). Columbus is NOT one of those teams
