I'd think his value is closer to a 3rd rounder now but it still makes no sense. If anything it would be for an NHL'er.
On the other hand, while the Wild wouldn't give up someone like Graovac for less than a 3rd rounder, I don't think anyone would offer even a third rounder for him. With huge risk (he's a 6'5" almost 20 year old who has never scored until now) and limited upside (ultimately he'd probably at best be a third liner) I think teams would rather take a longer term but higher potential player in the third.

I feel I have to note, I think Graovac is a great prospect to have in the system, and has a real chance to become an NHLer. However, if he'd been a 2nd or 3rd round pick initially, I don't think anyone would be excited about him.
