Define a first and a prospect. The first could have been a top 10 pick. The prospect could be any player that has not yet played a full season in the NHL. It could have been a sliding combination of both where the pick moves lower based on the prospect included or the expectation of the prospect moves lower with a high pick. So by rights Feaster could have meant a top 10 pick and a good prospect, or a late first round pick and a bluechip player on the verge. So as an example, it could have been to Pittsburgh for the number 9 pick and Brian Dumoulin or it could have been the number 20 pick and Brayden Schenn. See how a first and a prospect works? Both would be substantial pieces moving forward.
