More recently, Kristo and Collberg have been 2nd round picks, and the experts on this site are enthusiastic about their chances of success.
Only Subban is quality on that list, unless Collberg or Kristo become top notch.

These are my approximate expectations for their trade values:
Plekanec: Terrevainen
Markov: Forsberg
Cole: 1st rounder

I'd take 2nd rounders for Kaberle, Bourque, or possibly Gionta.

Those of us advocating we sell our veterans are not advocating a garage sale.
If we end up missing the playoffs, which I personnaly doubt, I wouldn't mind adding Forsberg, but then I'm not sure Washington would make that trade. Markov doesn't have such a good trade value. And Terrevainen is fine but pretty small. I like our vets, they have a good influence on the team, on the younger players.
