Even at that, I wouldn't trade Price for a pick. I mean, there's more of a chance that the #1 turns into an Eric Staal/Mike Richards style player rather than a Crosby/Malkin/future HOFer. And not to knock the talent level of Staal and Richards, but they're just "very good players", so is Price, so it would be a lateral trade. If someone offered me a player like Giroux, a young, proven, extremely talented guy for Price, I'd accept. But it would have to be a damn sure bet.
