You don't trade 23yo for picks, especially not one with the potential to be one of the better Dman of this league. It's like going backwards.
At least that #1 might not become a holdout. Besides, you wouldn't get Columbus's #1 pick in 2013 for aging veterans. The Rangers traded a parcel of talented young players for Rick Nash ( a 28-year-old former Columbus #1 who had leverage because he wasn't going to remain a Blue Jacket). Another thing: How do you know PK wouldn't split once he became eligible as a UFA? He'd still have Meehan as his agent.
