Edit: This may be the closest proof of what you are talking about..oddly enough, first there's Grant's post debunking the myth, then the one right after...
Maybe it was a big smokescreen to make sure we still got Galchenyuk. If teams drafting #4-5 like Galchenyuk, maybe this don't spend assets trading up to #2 and hope he falls to $3 or 4.
