Would you trade Kassian for say, Macarthur, Komisarek and a 2nd?

(Ballard > Komi but Forsberg > Kassian)
If I had 5 NHL calibre D, and not much on the wings, I'd trade a 2nd rounder for Macarthur. Komisarek is a non starter. He's bad.

I'm not totally sure how to value Raymond....but some deals to think about:

2012 - Johny Oduya for a 2nd and 3rd round pick
2012 - Andrei Kostitsyn for a 2nd round pick and conditional 5th
2012 - Bobrovsky for a 2nd, a 4th and another 4th
2012 - Lindback for a 2nd, another 2nd and a 3rd
2012 - Visnovsky for a 2nd round pick

I don't have a list of draft floor trades of picks but I'd be interested to see what teams trading out of the first over the years got back in picks later on.
