Trading down for extra picks and still getting the player you wanted is a good theory, but you don't know other team's boards. Before the draft Murray said they thought Lindholm would be around at 19 but he went to Anaheim at 6. Mcguire said a few GM's had Lindholm in their top 5. Who knows where other teams had Koekkoek slotted. They probably didn't feel it was worth the risk especially with how d-men were flying off the board.
