If Gudbranson had an exceptional year last year, I'd trade the first overall pick for him and Huberdeau alone. I am sure Florida would also see that as a massive overpay and wouldn't do it.

If you are willing to trade a first overall pick for an exceptional d-man prospect without another exceptional player packaged with him you are making a huge mistake.
