Most scouts and hockey writers have talked about the talent being fairly similar in the teens and 20s. Unless you have a particular player in mind (IMO that is Faksa and Girgensons .... maybe Gaunce), then you'll get similar value. You're very much in hit or miss territory in the teens so it's not a terrible idea.

The Stars have already talked about picking up extra picks in the Top 50.
The Stars have a history of trading back, and a history of seeing useful players taken with the picks they traded while whiffing on the ones they got in exchange.

The team doesn't need more picks like a rebuilding team, it needs more talent.
